VYM has been working closely with Manchester Metropolitan University and a group of youth workers and project managers from across the city to trial the Most Significant Change tool for assessing impact and reflect on practice to identify how outcomes are being achieved, and to ultimately inform future practice. If you have a Dropbox account you can listen to Janet Batsleer talking about how the project has developed.
Also, you can read Janet’s report of the Most Significant Change Pilot project undertaken in Manchester in 2015/16.
