Case Study: Canal & River Trust

2019-10-15T09:59:08+01:00

The Canal & River Trust is a waterways and wellbeing charity. Specifically, we’re here to care for and protect 2,000 miles of waterways, and to promote their use by the people who live around them. We believe life is better by water. As waterways flow through some of the most diverse and often deprived communities, there’s enormous potential for them to contribute to the wellbeing of individuals, communities and society. Since we launched in 2012 we’ve grown youth engagement from a single project to a national priority, changing our culture to become ‘youth fit’. We’re proud to be one of [...]

Case Study: John Muir Trust | #iwill4Nature

People of all backgrounds, but especially young people, enjoy and value exploring their relationship with wild places by taking responsibility through social action. They benefit from the challenge and adventure of being in wild places: by increasing their environmental awareness; by increasing their knowledge and skills; by sharing the experience with others; by having opportunities to show compassion and take responsibility for change – and take pride in their achievement. Our planet improves too – locally, nationally and internationally. Maintaining, improving and restoring wild places is good for the health of our local communities. It [...]

Case Study: The Scouts – A Million Hands

2019-09-18T09:47:21+01:00

Nearly 75% of Scouts support their communities at least once a week. It’s a powerful force for good, but not all young people get the same opportunity. Research from ComRes found that 82% of 12-24 year olds want to take part in social action, yet only 36% believe they have the chance to do so. This means the UK could be missing out on as much as 15.4 million hours of youth volunteering each month. The will is there; it’s just the opportunities they lack. If we can provide these opportunities – prioritising quality as well as scale and reach – [...]
