The purpose of the Young Partners project is to develop more opportunities for young people, support organisations to involve young people in their work and to develop NCVYS’s national youth forum, ENVOY. The project also runs an award called Young Partners Award to celebrate VCS organisations or projects that work in partnership with young people and involve them in decision making processes.

The Young Partner’s project is led by the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services, a diverse and growing network of over 280 national organisations and local networks that work with and for young people. Their aim is to build thriving communities and sustainable networks that empower all young people to achieve their potential.
This opportunity builds on Economic Change’s existing portfolio of work assisting organisations with their social impact process for Big Lottery funded projects.
We have helped organisations plan their social impact framework and evaluation process including systems for monitoring, and also acted as an independent evaluation body to assess their performance. Existing clients include Livity, Every Family Matters, Mind in Harrow amongst others.
