The Realising Ambition is holding a special event on 14 February 2017 to celebrate the work, success and learning of the Programme in Wales and the rest of the UK. We would be delighted if you or a colleague could attend.
In 2010 over 250 organisations from across the UK applied to be part of Realising Ambition, a strategic Big Lottery Fund programme which seeks to:
- Build the evidence base of what works to prevent youth offending
- Share learning about what it takes to replicate evidenced interventions
- Influence the policy and commissioning environment for evidence-based services.
We ‘commissioned’ 25 of the best and most robust offending prevention services in the youth sector. The organisations were not only funded to support children and young people at risk of offending. They were given intensive support to strengthen their organisations and their interventions’ evidence bases so that they could be replicated and potentially scaled in new geographical areas using new commissioning arrangements.
The Realising Ambition team looks forward to sharing our learning about what it takes to replicate evidence-based programmes. A highlight of the event will be children and young people talking about how they benefited from the work of Realising Ambition funded projects.
We also hope you will stay for a light lunch and networking from 1.00pm to 1.45pm when you will have the opportunity to talk with Realising Ambition partners and other guests, all of whom are committed to improving the lives of children, young people and families in Wales.
