Since the start of the pandemic, NYA and the Centre for Youth Impact have been gathering a range of the surveys focused on the impact of coronavirus on young people and the organisations that exist to support them. The data these surveys produce may be useful to researchers, practitioners and policy makers, and the list of surveys with data available is here.
In this blog, Sarah, our Operations Manager, reflects on the Centre’s relationship with Renaisi and what their support has meant to us over the years.
Alongside the existential crisis we faced at the start of lockdown, the team at the Centre, together with almost every other office-based worker in the UK, made the overnight move to home working. For us, this meant leaving our shared office space with Renaisi, with whom we’ve been co-located since April 2017… And not just leaving for a few months, but permanently. The decision to become a fully remote organisation was not made lightly, but with so much uncertainty (mostly financial) facing our small charity, it reluctantly and sadly seemed like the right way forward; an attempt to better secure our immediate future.
Back in April, Ed, our Director of Practice Development, marked the launch of the first version of the youth sector data standard by referring to the old joke about asking directions and being told that “you don’t want to start from here”. We have now moved on - from here to there - and can present the results of our second survey, building on and expanding that first version.
