To inspire young people to be creative and entrepreneurial, and to take ownership of driving change in their communities.
We inspire, upskill and connect young people that are passionate about community-led social change.
A journey to creative social action
100 change drivers
A proportion of the participants of Drivers for Change came from each the locations we visited, they now go home to their communities connected to each other and connected with those who supported our visits in their towns and cities. Our ambition is that everyone involved in the journey shares their experience and uses it to benefit their communities, creating a ripple effect of inspiration and tangible links to social action opportunities around the UK.
Impact data coming soon...
We're in the process of gathering our impact data from The Journey. Our anecdotal feedback has been brilliant (check out some of our participant's happy tweets below!) but we're keen to build on this by gathering quantitative insights too.
Please check back soon for an update!
The last 12 days have been eye opening! Participating in an incredible journey across the U.K. with @Change_Drivers & a group of other young changemakes from across the UK & beyond made it a transformative experience & was great to end at @UKHouseofLords for our pitch #DfCJourney pic.twitter.com/sFm1jIZrHZ

I honestly cannot believe it’s over! @Change_Drivers has been an incredibly transformative experience for me and I’m now, more than ever, determined to make the #change I want to see in the world! I’ve also made friends for life - which is a little bonus. #WatchThisSpace pic.twitter.com/wvjNojRelZ

theory of change
Our theory of change explains how we'll achieve the ambitious outcomes of this project.
We'll be measuring our impact along the way and once the journey is over we'll continue to measure our impact over a period of a year. This will give us a true understanding of what the lasting impact of the journey is on specific UK communities.
