Youth Work in Sport Evaluation

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

The programme aimed to create a better understanding of what works when using sport to engage young people, particularly those considered ‘hard to reach’. It was also hoped that the programme would provide practical learning for other organisations seeking to deliver this kind of work. This micro-site draws together the key learning from the programme and suggests approaches that clubs and organisations using sport may want to think about if they are seeking to involve young people in their work.
