FEDS success in youth project

The use of FEDS in evaluating the success of a ground breaking project aimed at turning young people away from crime has been hailed a success by the project organiser.

Rachel Lindsey, Head of Bexley’s Behaviour Federation said “This method of evaluation enabled us to get insightful feedback that would not have been achieved using standard methods. The participants were given confidence due to the anonymity, and the results will significantly impact on our planning for future programmes”.

FEDS was used to both evaluate the project and obtain the views of those involved and their parents. Bexley Council’s U-turn 1 project was set up to turn around the lives of young people who had moved from education towards crime.
