The intervention aims to support disadvantaged children and young people who may not flourish without link worker and specialist provider support. The intervention provides long-term, preventative support tailored to each individual child through a partnership of Link Workers, charities, schools, families and other community organisations, so that these children get on track to flourish in adulthood. This is a long-term programme of support and opportunities, tailored to each individual, guided by a ‘trusted adult’ Link Worker, which is carefully phased and managed over time. With Link Workers in school from September, their first job is to approach families, describe the programme using the positive language of ‘opportunities’ and ‘benefits’ (rather than the potentially negative language of ‘support’ or ‘needs’), and explain that the family will be involved every step of the way. From these initial conversations emerges each child’s ‘Individual Support Plan’ (ISP) – the core of each child’s two-year programme.
Children and young people aged 4 - 17 with a number of related, unmet needs, who are at risk of negative outcomes in their lives. This two year youth engagement focused collective impact bond (CIB) will support delivery of early interventions to 160 disadvantaged children and young people who may not flourish without link worker and specialist provider support.
INDIGO data are shared for research and policy analysis purposes. INDIGO data can be used to support a range of insights, for example, to understand the social outcomes that projects aim to improve, the network of organisations across projects, trends, scales, timelines and summary information. The collaborative system by which we collect, process, and share data is designed to advance data-sharing norms, harmonise data definitions and improve data use. These data are NOT shared for auditing, investment, or legal purposes. Please independently verify any data that you might use in decision making. We provide no guarantees or assurances as to the quality of these data. Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise. Help us improve our data quality: email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have data on new projects, changes or performance updates on current projects, clarifications or corrections on our data, and/or confidentiality or sensitivity notices. Please also give input via the INDIGO Data Definitions Improvement Tool and INDIGO Feedback Questionnaire.
