All Young Londoners Fund (YLF) projects report quarterly on the number of participants that start and complete their planned activity. 

There was no activity in the 2017/18 financial year.

Round 1 small grant funded projects deliver from October 2018 to October 2021, and medium and large projects from January 2019 to December 2021. They forecast that they will 56,000 young people in total will start activity.

Round 1 projects provided forecasts for each of their delivery years. For their first delivery year (over the period from October 2018 to December 2019) they are planning to support 10,700 young people, with 8,000 completing their planned activity. In financial year 2018/19 the 105 Round 1 projects reported that 6,600 young people started activity, of which 3,000 completed their planned activity.

Projects also produce a theory of change and evaluation plan which sets out how they will monitor the impact of their activity against up to seven YLF outcome areas. These build on the MOPAC Youth Outcomes Framework. You can read more in section 3.2 of the YLF prospectus www.london.gov.uk/apply-young-londoners-fund

The Centre for Youth Impact has been commissioned to help projects develop rigorous evaluation plans. In addition, the YLF will be externally evaluated.  

Applications for YLF Round 2 (£15m) is open and closes on 12 July 2019. Applicants are asked to provide details of their planned outputs and outcomes.
