Measuring our impact

We use a number of different techniques to measure our impact on a young person's emotional health and wellbeing, including a specially designed outcomes circle, wellbeing scales and feedback forms, as well as tracking other indicators such as attendance and engagement with education or employment post project. 

Results with Young people leaving care

In our projects for the older age group (young people leaving care) 100% of participants said that they would recommend Storeys to a friend and that they were proud of what they had achieved with Storeys. 87% of care leaver participants identified as thinking more positively after completing Storeys. We also had a reunion event with our first ever group of young people leaving care three months after the project, and 80% of participants said that they were using content from Storeys to manage their emotions often or all of the time. 

It was helpful to have something to do in the evenings and I had more energy during the course and started thinking about lots of different things.

Results with children in care and children at risk of exclusion

With our younger participants, 96% said that they would recommend Storeys to a friend and that they were proud of what they had achieved with Storeys, and they rated the projects on average 9.5/10. 73% of participants felt more comfortable in a group environment, and 75% felt they were better at knowing their strengths.

You meet nice different people and get used to different people, plus it is very fun.
