Last year, 62% of young people that CYP work with, choose to direct their motivation towards a positive route.

68% demonstrated raised aspirations and actively wanted to learn.

50% developed awareness of consequences of behaviour and learnt how to control their behaviour and respond in a positive way.

90% of young people that CYP worked with aged 7 to 11, demonstrated increased responsiveness to learning, improved understanding of consequences of behaviour.

We aim to build education and focused learning into our recreational activities then, after an initial period of delivery and engagement, begin to create leadership opportunities involving more children and young people in the decision-making and running of activities at CYP. The key stages of our programme for young people are:

  1. Enjoyment & learning;
  2. Building awareness of learning & identifying change;
  3. Actively wanting to continue learning & building responsibility and resilience;
  4. Reaching key long term outcomes.

We raise levels of motivation, helping children and young people to work towards more positive futures. The establishment of preventative programmes for children and young people with a special focus on the transitional period between primary and secondary education helps build responsibility, responsiveness and reliability within these individuals.

We aim to further develop partnerships with the probation service, youth offending and integrated gangs teams with a view to improving the support and rehabilitation of children and young people who are offending.

Monitoring & Evaluation

CYP is committed to effective monitoring and evaluation, to ensure that best practice, progression for young people and aims are being achieved.  At every session, a register is taken (name, age, gender, ethnicity of all attendees) and detailed session reports are written by youth workers.  All this information is uploaded by our youth workers onto our online monitoring system. This software allows us to set the expected outcomes for each young person and then measure them against the process.

We have also developed a method for user feedback which includes: questionnaires, recorded group discussions, one to one consultation, youth mentors feedback, targeted surveys, young people on the management committee, and youth member’s meetings.
