#iWill Fund Learning Hub: Quality Practice

This work will deepen our understanding of what it takes to deliver quality youth social action.
It will illustrate how delivery organisations define ‘double benefit’ and how they attempt to both achieve and measure it. This work will support delivery organisations to improve their offer (September 2018 – ongoing). ‘The Impact Accelerator’, delivered by the Centre for Youth Impact, is an intensive process of impact support, challenge and development – up to 30 organisations will take part in this. Learning from these organisations will be shared more widely to spread knowledge about improvement across the youth social action landscape.

This is the final report on the improvement journeys of the second cohort to go through the Impact Accelerator programme. This cohort of youth social action organisations began the programme in 2019 and experienced serious disruption due to the pandemic, but maintained focus on the fundamentals of quality programme design and delivery

Final Report on the Second Impact Accelerator Cohort

This is the final report on the improvement journeys of the second cohort to go through the Impact Accelerator programme. This cohort of youth social action organisations began the programme in 2019 and experienced serious disruption due to the pandemic, but maintained focus on the fundamentals of quality programme design and delivery.

Impact Accelerator Initial Insights

This paper was authored by Generation Change, who led the initial delivery of The Impact Accelerator. The Centre for Youth Impact took on all aspects of delivering this programme in August 2019. This is the initial insights paper for the first cohort, which commenced the Impact Accelerator in October 2018, and have completed nearly half of the 12-month process. It covers insights that have been collected from the first two phases of the Impact Accelerator, along with learning from the recruitment, selection and participation to date of organisations taking part in the scheme.

Building Confidence: Final Report on the First Impact Accelerator Cohort

Building on the initial cohort one report published by Generation Change in April 2019, this paper sets out a summary of the work undertaken, and lessons learned by the first cohort of organisations engaged in the Impact Accelerator. It then sets out key recommendations for the development of the programme, informed and guided by this learning.

Initial Report on the Second Impact Accelerator Cohort

This is the initial insights paper for the second cohort, who commenced the Impact Accelerator in September 2019. In this paper, we covers insights that have been collected from the first two phases of the Impact Accelerator, and our reflections on how insights from this cohort are supporting learning from the previous cohort.
