Measuring the difference we make
Our Impact Report explains how we help and how we measure our positive impact on people’s lives.
Many of the disadvantaged children and young people we support have complex and challenging needs. We tailor our support to suit family’s needs. Our initial assessment work ensures we understand each individual from the very beginning allowing us to meet their direct need.
We not only work closely with the individual and their immediate families but with other professionals they may be in contact with, such as teachers or social workers. This joined up working ensures we agree what’s needed and what changes they want to see in their lives. It's much easier to make change happen when you know what you're aiming for.
Successful change could be a parent establishing family routines to ensure their children get to school, or a disabled child making friends by learning to communicate in different ways or it could be a young person overcoming substance abuse.
We’re changing the way we communicate our impact by releasing a series of impact summaries and report cards. They reflect the needs that our important work addresses.
Our ‘Impact Report Cards’ summarise the needs we are seeking to address and evidence the % of children we positively impact together with the extent of change we see in different areas. See above for the range available.
Data from all our services across the UK shows that:
