Designed and developed by the Young Foundation in partnership with communities, Amplify responds to the real, lived experiences of people and the communities in which they live and is based on the principles of listening deeply and treading carefully. Amplify connects people to take action together. It combines research, community engagement and action to spark new ideas for tackling the key challenges faced by  communities.

The Young Foundation has carried out Amplify programmes across the UK, including in Northern Ireland, Leeds, Sheffield and Wales, and is currently conducting community research in Essex, Corby and London. We are constantly learning from our work and using our experience to refine and develop our approach. We share our learnings from Amplify in this synthesis report.
