Grow to Grow Outcomes
At Grow to Grow we routinely monitor outcomes for the young people attending the project
We use a range of assessment tools including validated questionnaires.
Results indicate that over 80% of people attending Grow to Grow achieve educational and/or employment outcomes, such as enrolling on college courses, taking exams or getting paid/voluntary employment.
Young people attending experience significantly improved wellbeing (measured using the Warwick Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale) and experience significant improvements in emotional, social and behavioural functioning (measured using the Children's Global Assessment Scale).
Attendees also make significant progress towards their personal goals.They most often set themselves social goals (e.g. “to make friends”, “to feel comfortable in a group”), emotional goals (e.g. “to feel happy in myself”) and vocational goals (e.g. “to learn about horticulture”).
