Theory of Change for Open Access Youth Provision

Posted on the 15th January 2018

The theory of change (ToC) was developed as part of the co-design stage of the Youth Investment Fund Learning Project in Autumn 2017. It was developed to support a common evaluation framework across the 86 Youth Investment Fund grantees, however, as this provision is so broad it has relevance for the open access youth sector as a whole. It was created through drawing on existing evidence and frameworks (e.g. McNeil et al, 2012), mapping grantee applications and delivery plans, seven grantee workshops across England and feedback from DCMS and BLF (the funders of the Youth Investment Fund).

As we hope the ToC will gain wider relevance, we welcome feedback from across the sector.
