learning new skilly by participating in constructive leisure activities
In addition, the one-to-one relationship with a keyworker seems to have had a positive impact, alongside the availability of constructive leisure activities. Being listened to was an important trigger for change for some young people. Taking part in activities also gave children the opportunity to learn new skills.

The study authors wanted to gather information from all the YISPs about each new referral in a given time period (February 2003 to October 2005). A management information system, known as YISPMIS, had been developed for the YJB for use by the pilots, and the authors were encouraged to use it as the means for data capture for the evaluation. Stripping the data set of these cases reduced it to 1,642 records. The extent of the quantitative analyses undertaken was severely compromised by the poor quality of YISPMIS data. Nevertheless, the quantitative data has been drawn wherever possible, to provide a wider context for the in-depth qualitative work. The in-depth qualitative work provided a rich tapestry of information about how the YISPs operated and about the more subtle impacts on children and parents. Four pilots as case-study sites were selected: Birmingham, Ealing, Lancashire and Nottingham. A range of methods were used to study these, including observations, interviews with professionals, exploratory interviews at different points in time with children and parents, discourse and narrative analysis, and documentary analysis.
