Information on registered members, accreditation, projects, workforce and finance for April 2020 to March 2021.

This is the first set of these statistics that cover the period of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic (with the exception of March 2020 that fell in the 2019-20 reporting year). This has had a substantial impact on some figures, in particular the ‘members’ and ‘projects’ sections of this release, as outreach was affected by the pandemic and restrictions in place. This should be kept in mind when making comparisons to previous years.

Main points

  • There were 32,751 registered members of statutory youth work sector provision in 2020-21, down 62% on 2019-20(a).
