Our Mission:

To inspire young people to be creative and entrepreneurial, and to take ownership of driving change in their communities.

INSPIRATION, NETWORKS & SKILLS

 

 

We inspire, upskill and connect young people that are passionate about community-led social change.

Impact

A journey to creative social action 

We want to inspire young people to develop projects that address community need. During our unique journey, we hosted project visits, workshops and talks that explored the different approaches to positive social change that are happening in the UK.


100 change drivers

As a result of the journey, the participants have a vibrant network and newly acquired skills. They return to their communities inspired to play their part in place-based social change. Some of the change drivers will go on to start new projects e.g. social enterprises, creating a network of youth-led social impact projects.


Community engagement 

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!

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.
