We are really pleased to share our working paper on the role of youth provision in supporting young people to build assets for a healthy life. This research was funded by the Health Foundation and forms part of the Young People’s Future Health Inquiry, which aims to build understanding of the influences affecting the future health of young people.
In the summer of 2018, the Local Government Association commissioned the Centre for Youth Impact to produce an outcomes framework to help organisations and agencies across the youth sector to develop mutual aims for work with and for young people in their local areas. Following more than 18 months’ consultation, development and testing, we published the final document in November 2019: a Framework of Outcomes for Young People 2.0 and an accompanying technical report.
If you could ask your colleagues across the youth sector any question, what would it be? In December we will be launching ‘Asking good questions: the survey’, a new monthly survey by and for organisations working with young people.
The Enterprise Development Programme is a five year programme, funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and managed by a coalition of partners. The programme aims to provide a broad range of support for charities and social enterprises in England, helping them become more financially resilient by developing new enterprise models, or by growing existing ones.
A year-long pilot of the Programme was launched in September 2018 for charities and social enterprises working in the Youth and Homelessness sectors. Following the success of this pilot, Access have committed to expanding this programme, and are pleased to welcome on board the Mental Health and Equality sectors, as well as extending the involvement of the pilot sectors until 2021.
