The Realising Ambition consortium, of which The Young Foundation was a part, produced a series of 12 Programme Insights rather than writing a long evaluation report at the end of the five-year programme.

In our seventh Programme Insight, we consider key issues evidence-based commissioning is presenting to commissioners. We offer learning from the Realising Ambition delivery organisations on the role that evidence has played as they have engaged commissioners with their preventative services.

We also examine the Realising Ambition Confidence Framework. This resource helps to assess services’ and their delivery organisations’ ability to achieve outcomes while identifying areas for development, adaptation and refinement.
