    NCVYS Publications

    As part of its remit, the NCVYS publishes a number of different publications in order to raise awareness of youth issues, to promote better understanding of the problems which today's youth are facing and highlighting stories that have appeared in the news that have an impact on younger people in England's modern society. Taking online gambling and bingo sites that present danger for youths, partnering with the responsible leaders in the niche like the market leader in online bingo industry -

    TopRatedBingoSites.co.uk . We strongly believe that with the help of such established and responsible companies the dangers of attracting young people to gambling will get lower.

    The scope of publications under the NCVYS umbrella include magazines, newsletters and information packs, all of which are aimed at a variety of audiences and are designed to give practical advice, wide ranging information and to pinpoint events which could be of interest to its membership sector around the country. By quoting case studies and by analysing policies, their publications are designed to be read both by young people themselves and also by those within their membership organisations.

    The readership of Exchange magazine us approximately 3000 across the length and breadth of the country, and every quarter, the front cover is designed by a different young designer who uses their own unique artwork to capture the magazine's theme. Some of the previous issue covers have been created by Saliqur Rohman, a young designer from East London. His 2009 Spring issue cover depicted a theme surrounding faith and young people. The following issue in Summer 2009 was centred around disabilities, and the cover was created by a young designer from Manchester, Gareth Daley, who used the key tagline “disable the label”. The use of young designers in the creation of each issue's cover is designed to live the values of the organisation, through the involvement of youths in the organisation's work and in the implementation of its vision. As an added benefit, the young designers also benefit from the additional promotion and exposure they receive from being so prominently featured.
