A Perspective from Northern Ireland examines recent developments in the Northern Ireland Youth Service. This section of the chapter traces the impact of devolution on the youth service and in particular the Department of Education's policy 'Priorities for Youth policy'. The newly suggested priorities of youth work are explored, but also the structural changes and budget implications. In addition, the epistemic challenges facing youth workers and youth service managers are highlighted.
