We are committed to sharing our insight. This page will include resources developed as part of the Youth Investment Fund Learning Project.

Youth Investment Fund Grantees’ Theory of Change

A shared theory of change (ToC) was developed as part of the co-design phase of the YIF learning project, which took place in Autumn 2017. This provides a common evaluation framework across the 90 YIF grantees, as well as the open access youth sector more broadly.

Six Characteristic Groupings of YIF Provision

We have developed six dimensions that grant holders will use to describe their YIF activity. This approach will allow us to test which characteristics are significant during analysis, and develop typologies based on this data.

YIF Insight Papers

Throughout the lifetime of the YIF learning project we aim to share insights and learning with our key audiences. From 2018-19, we will be producing short biannual insights papers.
