Haymarket to launch youth work weekly in new year
LONDON – Haymarket Business Publications is to launch a new weekly magazine in January aimed at people in the youth work sector.
Called Young People Now, it is being developed from a monthly magazine acquired from The National Youth Agency. It is targeting young people working as health advisers, outreach workers and others working in informal education with young people.
Current editor Tim Burke will stay on as consultant editor and feature writer Steve Beebee will also continue to write for the title, while the NYA will retain two pages of its own news within the revamped magazine.
Young People Now will be the only weekly dedicated to the growing youth work sector, which already attracts significant government investment and is supported by many active voluntary organisations.
Youth workers will find essential news, analysis and features, as well as the most comprehensive specialist job section available. The launch circulation will be 16,000, including the title's 4,000 existing paying subscribers.
Young People Now is being edited by Stovin Hayter while former Campaign group ad manager Jon Mallott takes up the same position on the new title. The magazine's publishing director is Phil Manley.
Hayter, a former editor of Horticulture Week, launched Revolution in the UK and then in New York and, this year, oversaw as editor in chief the transformation of Third Sector into a weekly when it was bought in March.
Manley launched weekly Regeneration & Renewal in October 2000 and is also publishing director of Planning. The launch is the culmination of work by the research & development team's Jessica Haydon, which was monitoring growth in the sector since spring 2001, according to business development director James Little.
Haymarket also publishes Brand Republic.
