Research & guidance
We have been working with partner organisations to create a range of reference documents to support the campaign objectives. These partners include: Cabinet Office; Ipsos MORI; The National Council of Voluntary Organisations; The National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi); Community Service Volunteers (CSV); the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues at Birmingham University.
The latest materials we’d like to highlight are the NDTi & Pears Foundation Report ‘Embedding inclusive practices in opportunities for youth social action’, NCVO’s guidance on involving young people in social action, and Generation Change’s report on the six quality principles. We’d also like to draw your attention to an overview of Ofsted’s perspective on the role that youth social action can play in our schools. All make interesting reading and demonstrate the high-level support that the #will campaign is generating.
You can download these documents and others below.
