School Funders’ network

There is growing evidence that children’s social and emotional skills are associated with success at school, as well as positive outcomes in adulthood, such as stable employment, physical and mental health, and well-being. In this session, Neil Humphrey, Professor of the Psychology of Education at the University of Manchester, will take us through what we can measure (and what we should measure) in assessing the impact of projects aiming to develop young people's essential skills.

Stronger Foundations Project

On the 1 December we will bring foundation and sector leaders together to start the co-development of this vital project that will draw on a range of external experience and evidence. The Stronger Foundations Project will identify and codify leading practice for foundations, hopefully leading to enhanced effectiveness of individual foundations and a greater responsiveness to the concerns of beneficiaries.
