Quantitative Fragebogenerhebung (schriftlich/offline), Qualitative Interviewbefragungen (persönlich)
The case study included quantitative data collected for all sessions by workers, workers’ project evaluations and other papers. Towards the end of the first year of operation in the period May to July 2010, interviews were held with the five senior TYA staff; semi-structured interviews were also held with sixteen staff delivering the programme. Additional interviews were conducted with young people (4 small groups of 2-6 young people) in regular contact with TYA workers. In addition, representatives of two other voluntary agencies, local stakeholders, the mother of a participant and a local Action Group were interviewed.
