The Centre for Youth Impact continues to explore the feasibility of a collective impact approach that can deliver better outcomes for young people in the UK. This work is carried out in partnership with NPC and UK Youth.
Last week we saw representatives of national youth organisations, funders and local practitioners provide feedback on our emerging recommendations for collective impact to thrive in the UK. This report has been generously funded by the Paul Hamlyn foundation, and this support has also enabled us to visit the US and learn from the Ready by 21 model. Participants at the event had the opportunity to hear from US expert Larry Pasti from Ready by 21 and UK collective impact pioneer Paul Perkins from the North Camden Zone.
We'll soon be recruiting members of a steering group to guide the next stages of this work and local implementation. If you're interested in collective impact, would like to provide input on this work or join the steering group, you can email us to request a copy of the draft report and any further information.
