Tags: capital grants | case study | running a facility

Author: Carolyn Oldfield; The National Youth Agency, 2008.

The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) asked The National Youth Agency (NYA) to produce case studies on recent capital investment in youth facilities to help those applying to myplace learn from the experience of others. Between June and September 2008, The NYA compiled 35 case studies on individual facilities, and eight case studies on local authorities’ strategic approaches to capital investment. The facilities cover a broad range, including voluntary and statutory sector provision, new builds and refurbishments, specialist provision including arts, sports, outdoor education and mobile provision, and the co-location of youth provision with other services. This report provides an overview of the findings of the case studies.

Authors: Annik Sorhaindo and Leon Feinstein; Centre for Research on the Wider Benefits of Learning, Institute of Education, University of London, 2007.

In the context of debates about the need for structure in youth provision, this research was undertaken clarify what is meant by structured and integrated provision and to advance knowledge a little further about how to achieve structured and integrated provision, about its benefits and about how it is experienced on the ground by young people, parents, members of the local community and practitioners. The research assessed seven youth clubs across England employing a structured and integrated model of youth provision to identify their planned and actual programmes of work and the context in which these take place, to draw out commonalities and differences across the clubs and to determine which factors are perceived to help or hinder successful work and to facilitate or create barriers to integration.
