Essentially, The Unattached charts the embryonic stages of detached youth work. It outlines case studies from three contrasting areas, including worker recordings and an examination of approaches applied. References to processes of developing, delivering, maintaining and evaluating detached provision abound. The book advocates the importance of reconnaissance, area profiling, resource allocation and targeting. It also recognises that needs-led services exist only where relationships are carefully negotiated, allowing mutual trust, respect and understanding to develop. As such, it provides a step-by-step guide to developing detached projects. Crucially, it argues that detached work should not be viewed as a cheap option or quick fix aimed at sweeping away the latest youth problems. Instead, it should be celebrated for its ability to engage those whose needs have not been met by the mainstream. This engaging account is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.
