MAP leads regional network to promote effective work with young people

We are delighted to announce that MAP has been chosen to work with The Centre for Youth Impact as the Regional Impact Network lead for the East of England. The partnership will support organisations across the region to develop their understanding of impact in work with young people. We hope to collaborate with practitioners, managers, funders and commissioners in the area to advance thinking and practice through peer support, collaboration and shared learning.

This will involve MAP’s youth work team and The Centre for Youth Impact facilitating open meetings and networking events, which any organisation in the East of England can attend. The aim of these meetings and networking will be to share good practice and knowledge, present challenges and access peer support. Over time, we hope organisations are able to generate shared solutions to the challenges of impact measurement and service design.

The Centre for Youth Impact is a community of organisations, committed to working together to progress thinking and practice around impact measurement in youth work and services for young people. You can find out more information on the Youth Impact website.

We aim for the first networking event to take place in November and will be announcing the details very shortly.
