Evaluation & Impact Landing Page

Our systematic evaluation of our programmes, over both the short and long term, means we can make data-driven operational decisions quickly and ensure focused strategic impact

Innovation is the cornerstone of our work, ensuring that our programme design is responsive and constantly evolving. We gather data from all participants and delivery partners which is used to evaluate programme strengths, identify areas of improvement and respond to new and emerging issues.

We consistently monitor the impact of our programmes. Through our annual Impact Report, we promote learning and facilitate sector-wide conversations about how best to support young people and adults to navigate conflict.

In 2018 we updated our Theory of Change and have done so again in 2020 to encompass the adaptations we made to our programmes as a result of Covid-19. We will review this again in August 2021 to ensure that it reflects the needs of and challenges faced by young people in a post-pandemic society.

Young peoples' insights are central, not only to decision-making, but to sector change. We are committed to building a sector where high quality youth practice is the norm.
