Building the foundations of a data literate youth sector: what we’ve learnt so far from the Youth Investment Fund (YIF) Learning Project
This blog was written by Sarah Williams, Research and Learning Officer at the Centre. As we enter the third and final year of the Youth Investment Fund (YIF), this blog reflects on what we have learnt about the collection and management of impact data, and how these lessons can be applied across the youth sector. The YIF is a £40 million fund from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and The National Lottery Community Fund, supporting around 90 youth providers over a three-year period (2017 – 2020) to develop and expand their open access youth provision. NPC and the Centre for Youth Impact are leading the learning and impact strand of the fund.
