The Centre for Youth Impact has been commissioned by the Local Government Association to develop an outcomes framework that supports stakeholders across the informal and non-formal youth sector to agree common goals for their work, collaborate more closely, and improve commissioning through a better understanding of quality and impact in youth work and provision for young people.
The Centre for Youth Impact is hosting its fourth annual Gathering on Tuesday 18 September 2018. The event will be held at Resource for London, in Holloway, North London, and will focus on the relationship between impact, power and change.
In June the Centre for Youth Impact and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) are hosting a series of roundtables that will explore the steps necessary to create and sustain an ‘evidence base’ for informal and non-formal youth provision in England. In order to explore these questions, five roundtables are being held across various locations in England with a mixture local and national youth organisations, funders, commissioners, evaluators and policymakers all invited to join the debate. You can read a short paper that we’ve put together on the background for the roundtables here. We will also be producing a summary report after the events have taken place and will host a workshop at The Gathering to discuss the next stages of the work.
