Following the announcement of our England cohort in February, it is our pleasure to announce that a further 15 youth organisations from Scotland, Wales and Jersey have now signed up to pilot the YPQI.
We are pleased to announce that the first Insight Paper from the Youth Investment Fund (YIF) Learning Programme has now been published. It can be found on the YIF Learning Website here. The paper describes the shared evaluation framework that has been developed for the programme, with input from the 90 organisations that have received funding. It also sets out the rationale for using such shared approaches: to provide a consistent basis for learning, quality improvement and evaluation.
We are delighted to begin our work as the learning partner for the Listening Fund Scotland, which will run until March 2021.
The Listening Fund (Scotland) is supported by the Corra Foundation, the National Lottery Community Fund, Comic Relief, The Gannochy Trust and William Grant Foundation. Twelve Scottish youth organisations are being funded over two years to build their capacity around active organisational listening, to equip them to better support young people to be critical in influencing and leading change.
