The Centre for Youth Impact and Project Oracle are delighted to announce that they have joined forces. Project Oracle will operate from within the Centre, leveraging its excellent work and reputation while allowing it to continue its work on validations, training and evaluation placements in London, and beyond, through the Centre’s networks.
Project Oracle has evolved continuously to achieve its mission. Emerging from a project at the Greater London Authority, Project Oracle Evidence Hub started life as a partnership between The Social Innovation Partnership and London Metropolitan University, led by founding Co-Directors Professor Georgie Parry-Crooke and Stephen Bediako. Then in 2016, Project Oracle became an independent registered charity led by Sue Holloway. Now the joining of Project Oracle with The Centre for Youth Impact creates the opportunity to develop a stronger, combined offer for the youth sector in the UK.
Bethia McNeil, Director of the Centre for Youth Impact, says:
“I am delighted that the Centre for Youth Impact and Project Oracle have been able to take this opportunity to bring the two organisations together to strengthen our support and commitment to high quality youth work and provision for young people across the UK. The Centre and Project Oracle have long been closely aligned through our respective values and we can now move forward with translating this into a clear and accessible support role to the sector”.
The coming together of the Centre and Project Oracle creates the space in which to integrate the expertise and partnerships of the two organisations at a time when the quality and reach of youth work and provision for young people has arguably never been so critical. By joining forces, Project Oracle and the Centre for Youth Impact can better support all those working with and for young people.
