supplementation of the service provided by other institution respectively change of policy or practice of that institution

institutionelle Zusammenarbeit

The reviews and case studies yielded a considerable number of examples of the ways in which youth work either supplemented and added value to the service provided by another institution or actually changed the policy or practice of that institution. Alternative curricula and programmes for young people, in particular in Years 10 and 11 in secondary schools, were frequently cited. Youth workers have also been called on to help services adjust their working practices so they can make better provision for young people – another form of consequential impact. Local youth services are combining in various ways with other service providers to take a more holistic approach to the needs and aspirations of young people in their communities.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

The findings summarised below have been derived from evidence from five main strands: (1) A documentary review of fifty local services (one third of services in England); (2) An analysis of available numerical data about youth services based primarily on the annual audit conducted by the National Youth Agency; (3) Reviews of fifteen selected local services that have explored aspects of provision and impact, including the ways in which they are influenced by the leadership and management of local services. These reviews have drawn on the testimony of young people, youth workers, youth service managers and partners derived from semi-structured interviews and group discussions; (4) Thirty case studies of practice, each located in one of the fifteen services selected for review; (5) A self-administered survey conducted among 630 young people who use local youth services in the review areas.
