Our Impact

Youth Focus North East improve the lives of young people across the North East. We work with young people and professionals to develop new approaches, enhance practice, and directly influence positive change now, and for the future. We categorise our activities in to three areas; strategy, development and delivery.

Each area of work can stand alone as a discrete activity, but we see our most effective work happening when all three elements are brought together.


Our Impact in Numbers

We work with young people, partners and communities across the region. All of our opportunities are inclusive and we support young people regardless of their background. We capture and record data from across our work so we can better understand how we work, and the difference we make. As well as participant demographics, we use our bespoke Impact Measurement Survey with young people to understand their perceived level of competence at the beginning, middle and end of their experience. Below are some key stats from our work in 2018.


Beyond the Numbers

We have also captured and shared stories from young people about their journey with us. A selection of these case studies can be found on the case studies page.
