Measuring our impact

We are passionate about robustly measuring the impact Element projects have. We collect a combination of quantitative and qualitative data, specifically to measure:

+

MEANINGFUL ACTIVITY

Element sessions encourage participants to get into a healthy and productive weekly routine. Throughout the Element projects, we also organise trips to theatres, galleries, and museums. Using the Office of National Statistics Time Use Survey, we measure if participants spend more time in meaningful activity after taking part in an Element project.

+

ASPIRATIONS & HOPE

Element projects aim to increase the self-confidence of participants through fostering achievable and positive goal setting. We use the Future Scale as a way of tracking if participants feel more hopeful about their future - and the control they have over this - post-project.

+

PERCEPTIONS OF WELLBEING

As we believe that emotional stability is the foundation from which to reach a successful and happy life, measuring it is a key part of our impact strategy. We do this through self-reflective forms that capture participant perceptions of their own emotional wellbeing after an Element project.

+

PERCEPTIONS OF PROJECT

Feedback from participants is crucial in ensuring that we deliver the best projects that we can, with the most relevant and useful content. We collect post-project feedback for this very reason, and to find out what is most valued by the young people.

It was helpful to have something to do in the evenings and I had more energy and started thinking about lots of different things.
