News Feeds

News feeds

News feeds are an easy way to keep updated on the news that's of interest to you. Instead of having to go to Children & Young People Now or Youth Work Now to see if theres a new story or feature, a news feed will deliver the headlines straight to your desktop, every time the news you want is updated.

How does it work?

Children & Young People Now and Youth Work Nows feeds use RSS (which stands for Really Simple Syndication). To use RSS, you need to get hold of an application called a news reader. There are many that you can download, some free and some that require a small fee. They display RSS information feeds from your chosen websites on your computer. After you have installed the application, all you have to do to get set up is choose what RSS feeds you want, for example an RSS feed of all the latest social care or youth work stories.

Click on the feed you want from the list below, then add the URL (the web address at the top of the browser window that will pop up) into your reader. You can also copy the URL or any RSS links you see on the site to receive the RSS feed for that page. Not all readers operate in exactly the same way so refer to your readers user guide for more details.
