Online - Using evidence-based interventions to improve outcomes for young people
Research has shown that the circumstances of a child’s early life dictate their future outcomes, from health to career and life expectancy. However, we also know that evidence-based early interventions in education and care can change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
The Youth Endowment Fund (YEF) focuses on finding and funding interventions that show promise in reducing youth violence and improving outcomes for young people. Building an evidence bank on the most effective ways to support children, the YEF evaluates ideas, scales up what works and takes action to improve the system.

In-Person - The Briefing: landscape for mission and evangelism in London
@ALL BAR ONE | THE O2, LONDON,
a one-stop gathering for church leaders to hear what’s happening across the Capital in 2023 in terms of mission and evangelism. This year we’ll be hearing about the Talking Jesus research.
What is the landscape in which we are doing mission and evangelism in London? The state of faith and the view and thinking of non-Christians? How do people normally come to faith? How can knowledge of all of this shape evangelistic strategy? The Talking Jesus research answers these questions. Come and hear Dr. Rachel Jordan-Wolf, Executive Director of HOPE Together and Rachael Heffer, Head of Mission at the Evangelical Alliance, as they unpack the findings and help us to discuss and work together on what this means for us in London.
