Wiltshire Integrated Youth ServicesThe Wiltshire Integrated Youth Service ensures that young people in Wiltshire have available to them:
·a safe, warm, well-equipped meeting place within reasonable distance of home, accessible to young people at times defined by young people, giving an opportunity to participate in personal and social development activities - including arts, drama, music, sport, international experience and voluntary action;
·a wide diversity of youth clubs, projects and youth activities;
·a set programme, related to core youth work values and principles, based on a curriculum framework which supports young people’s development in citizenship, the arts, drama, music, sport, international experience and personal and social development, including through residential experiences and peer education;
·a comprehensive generic, confidential information, advice and counselling service;
·mechanisms for ensuring that their voice is heard, perhaps (though not exclusively) through a youth council or youth forum for each locality, with the intention of supporting youth engagement in local democracy in a wide range of ways;
·an annual youth service questionnaire involving young people in auditing and evaluating the services (provided by the local authority youth service) available to them locally;
