Centre for Youth Impact – East Midlands Regional Impact Network
This your chance to be part of a national network for those working with young people to shape the way we demonstrate our Impact and evidence the difference we make to to young people.
Our networks of youth sector practitioners and managers are the driving force of our work to advance thinking and practice in evaluation and impact measurement across the whole youth sector. These networks are communities of practice that come together to share, challenge and develop their ideas and approaches.
We support our networks based on our belief that collaboration and peer-to-peer and action-focused learning are the most likely to lead to solutions that ‘stick’: meaningful, learning-focused impact measurement that is owned by practitioners, and that improves practice and ultimately, outcomes for young people.
Our regional networks are led by existing, well-networked organisations with a desire to reflect openly, develop their own impact practice and support organisations around them to do likewise.
We believe both that it is important for the individual network lead to be an advocate for our work and approach, and that they are supported and resourced by a regionally-based organisation to do so.

- To organise at least two training opportunities for network members
