Youth Cymru’s Detached training programme supported our practitioners to become more confident and informed:  For those already with some related experience, this provided a ‘refresher’ experience but was most valued by those who had only ever worked in a youth club environment and were preparing to adapt to a different setting.  The training, delivered online, blended information giving with facilitated discussion and, most significantly, encouraged participants to reflect on how detached work could be conducted in the context of their own service and geographical area
