Noticing the Change – A Framework of Outcomes for young people in practice

Published: March 2013 Publication Type: Publication

Authors: Bethia McNeil, Mhairi Aylott, Tessa Hibbert

In July 2012 the Catalyst consortium published A Framework of Outcomes for Young People, which makes the case for why social and emotional capabilities matter, and why funders, commissioners and investors should have more confidence in their value.

The team went on to work with three organisations, each seeking to develop an outcomes focus in their work with young people: Brathay Trust, the British Red Cross, and London Youth.

Noticing the Change, published on behalf of the Catalyst consortium (a NCVYS co-ordinated partnership), documents the experience of the three youth sector organisations in piloting an outcomes approach to their work. It makes recommendations for implementing this approach to all youth sector organisations and considers the wider implications for the sector as a whole.
