Case Study Background
The detached project supported by Erasmus+ via Leargas addresses the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on young people in Europe, focusing on those most socially excluded. A consequence of lockdown was an increase in the number of young people disconnected from employment, education and training supports. Young people who were previously facing challenges are likely to have experienced a complete disconnect from services and supports, they will now need new supports to help them transition back into services.
Detached Youth Work is an effective way of connecting socially excluded young people with the supports they require. Below you will find case studies illustrating how detached work can support young people disconnected from services and supports.
