Core Advisory Group – New Members Join

Posted on the 14th February 2019

We are delighted to announce that three new grant holders have joined as members of the YIF learning project core advisory group. These include:

  • James Brookes, Young Somerset
  • Kim Jones, Portishead Youth Centre
  • Dominic Hinshelwood, Laburnum Boat Club

Kim was able to join us for our Dec 18 meeting. She commented: “We have been very pleased to be involved in the YIF Learning Project and the opportunities that this has provided. Meeting with other like-minded professionals has helped with developing best practice, professional discussion and networking. Also, contributing towards Youth Work literature with the pilot evaluation we have been involved in is something to be proud of.”

The role of the core advisory group is to work closely with the learning project team on all aspects of co-design within the evaluation programme, including methods, technical options and solutions, and activities as part of the learning programme (such as training), to make sure that we are setting up systems which will work on the ground. This group will also be involved in the co-facilitation of learning events, recognising that the co-design process represents a significant learning/capacity building opportunity. The group meet quarterly.
