MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

We are committed to making a meaningful difference to young people’s lives by developing their skills, confidence and sense of agency.

Every day, we measure our reach and the impact of our programmes through outcomes such as increased confidence, increased oracy skills and increased empathy with other people’s perspectives.  These data help us continually develop the work we do and innovate new programmes.

Because we are committed to transparency in reporting, we publish our impact data online daily using an externally validated impact framework.
