Rights and Equalities - Evidence and Learning
The evaluation of our Rights and Equalities initiative is being carried out by University of Stirling (Centre for Child Protection and Wellbeing). They will publish their final Evaluation Report in April 2021.
Our Rights and Equalities funding initiative was designed to support projects which target young people with care experience who may face additional disadvantage due to protected characteristics, experience of youth justice, homelessness or mental health issues.
The Trust funded five Rights and Equalities projects, in order to develop a new learning and understanding of the needs and aspirations of young people with care experience young people affected by protected characteristics.
The evaluation will look at whether this funding has led to improved confidence and skills in the young people with care experience involved in these projects, as well as whether there has been an increase in their ability to exercise their rights.
