The Centre for Youth Impact has been commissioned by the Local Government Association to refresh the original Framework of Outcomes for Young People produced by the DfE-funded Catalyst Consortium in 2012. We are now at the end of the first phase of the project, and the final draft of the revised Outcomes Framework can be found here. We are actively seeking feedback on this document and are in the process of producing a user guide and training package for practitioners that will sit alongside it – this will be the focus of phase two of the project. In addition, we will be working with the National Youth Agency to incorporate the Framework into its revised Commissioning Guidance, and to develop supporting resources for commissioners.
This work is in response to LGA’s consultations that fed into its vision statement, Bright Futures: our vision for youth services, published at the end of 2017. Bright Futures notes:
“A clear outcomes framework can help to effectively monitor the impact of a service at key milestones to spot where things aren’t working and provide opportunities to make changes where needed. It can also support evidence of collective impact across the system.”
You can also view an Executive Summary of the full Outcomes Framework 2.0 document here.
