Abstract

Emerging trends and developments across the Community Youth work sector resulted in the organising of Community Youth Work Practice and Autism Spectrum Conditions - Understanding, Inclusion and Participation. This conference, convened on January 25th 2019, was a partnership between the Community Youth Work Department at Ulster University, Youthpact and YWelp (www.youthworkandyou.org) and aimed to facilitate the sharing of best practice in the area of ASC and to develop a manifesto to support policy and practice in CYW with young people. The key aim of the conference was to provide information, tools, and strategies to support young people with Autism Spectrum Conditions across the community youth work sector. This paper represents the distillation of themes from the conference and a manifesto for policy and practice that includes and engages young people with autism spectrum conditions
