Registration is Closed

Time & Location

19 May 2020, 10:30 – 12:00

About the Event

This session will look at the learning from the work completed through a number of the Young People’s Foundations and it will aim to both share practice and also profile an opportunity for groups to apply for funding (up to 5K) to develop their own local research. This session will offer the chance to review the work completed by 3 Young People’s Foundations, including: 

  1. Hammersmith and Fulham – Young People’s Research which is currently underway
  2. Harrow Needs Analysis 
  3. Young Westminster Foundation – A City within a City 

The session will cover: 

  • how undertaking local research has changed the focus of their work 
  • assessing the methods used and learning from the approach, specifically young people’s engagement in      the design and delivery  
  • consider how local areas can take a more research informed approach
  • resourcing research and costing your approach

Pilot Funding 

As part of the work happening under the remit of the Cornerstone Fund, each year there is the opportunity for groups to apply to a local offer of support to fund a research informed approach. Participants attending this session can  then submit a proposal for up to 8k to develop their own micro projects. Within this we would be encouraging them to identify the following: 

  • The research area that they would like to explore
  • The partners engaged to date 
  • How young people will be involved in the design and delivery of the research
  • How research partners will be engaged to help shape the work 
  • What support you need to develop the idea 

This will be assessed by the research network which has been set up by the Cornerstone Fund.
