This case study forms part of the youth employment infrastructure research and evaluation project carried out by RAND Europe on behalf of the Youth Futures Foundation (YFF). The objective of this case study is to explore how infrastructure organisations (IOs) across England work to effect change at various levels of policymaking as part of their mission to improve youth employment outcomes.
It aims to understand the impact of these activities on frontline organisations and the young people they seek to support, as well as the key barriers and facilitators that may play a role. These findings are based on semi-structured interviews with two IOs (The Traveller Movement and Youth Access) and three policymakers (from the Greater London Authority [GLA] and the Department for Education [DfE]).
Interviewees were identified through the Youth Futures Foundation and desk research as part of the project. The interviews were complemented by a targeted review of relevant literature. The case study also refers to other organisations mentioned by the interviewees or in the reviewed literature.
