Funding from the Ireland Funds has allowed us to develop this exciting project with young people where they learn how to be evaluators - working with us to show the impact of our work and why it is important to young people. We held our first residential at the end of April 2023 and a second at the end of June 2023 with exciting plans for evaluating the work in the year ahead. With help from the National Children's Bureau and Professor Tony Gallagher from Queen's University, young people will help us show the difference that our work makes.
Politics in Action is still a relatively new organisation and we want to put evaluation at the heart of all that we do. Young people's perspectives and insights are essential both in helping us decide what we want to measure but also in understanding and interpreting the information we get back.
Stay tuned for updates as this important project develops.
