Children, young people and charities
From youth clubs and in-school schemes, to access programmes and support services, charities and their funders play a vital role in improving educational, social and emotional outcomes for children and young people. This work is varied and often intersects with complex social issues like poverty and abuse.
We’re exploring how these efforts can be even more impactful. Our work on the Youth Investment Fund is the largest shared measurement project ever, we worked with the Building Connections Fund to understand how co-design and technology could be used by youth clubs to tackle loneliness, and through our My Best Life partnership we’re exploring digital solutions to the challenges young people face. Find out how you can get involved in this work.
