NKBL works with a wide range of practitioners and partners across Scotland from youth workers to teachers and Police.


Our partners work in a variety of settings including schools, local communities, residential units and youth projects.


About the NKBL Network

The NKBL Network aims to bring partners together via a number of channels. We strive to meet the needs of all partners and to provide opportunities to share experiences, promote good practices, and give feedback on what we do.


We have a monthly newsletter and hold regular Network events nationally.


Practitioners from our network also discuss relevant issues on our blog. If you would be interested in writing a blog for us please contact the team.


How we work

The Network is currently managed by the National Delivery Team but is led by our partners.


Our activities are a direct result of feedback from our partners and individual practitioners on the kinds of events they highlight as being most useful and relevant to their work and areas they would like more information about.


Sharing information and good practice

The NKBL Network also works as a channel for information and good practice sharing between partners. Presentations from previous Network events can be found in the Resources sections under Network Presentations.


If you would like to request or share some information, please contact the National Delivery Team.
