What we do

The Centre for Youth Impact is a community of organisations committed to working together to progress thinking and practice around impact measurement in youth work and services for young people.

The Centre builds and supports this community, and creates space for organisations to come together to understand and increase their impact.

We work with providers, funders, commissioners, policy makers and young people to:

  • Provide a focal point for and ‘route in’ to information, support and debate in relation to evidence and impact
  • Build and support a community of ‘early adopter’ organisations who coach, train and share learning across their networks 
  • Create an inclusive platform to promote debate and discussion to advance both thinking and practice
  • Collaborate with others to test, learn and build momentum behind the impact agenda across those working with young people
  • Make existing resources, research and evidence more accessible
  • Support young people and the organisations they work with to understand how they can shape and participate in evaluation and understanding of impact
  • Develop and publish resource reviews to give organisations of all shapes and sizes the practical tools they need to improve their impact measurement
