Evidence of HYPE’s impact

The Wirral peninsular is home to around 74,500 children and young people.  The outcome of life for the children and young people remains inconsistent HYPE has been trying to improve this since it set up in 2008. In 2014 a report was commissioned to examine the ways in which HYPE aims to improve the opportunities for the children and young people living on the Wirral.

Conducting discussions with service-users and partner organisations, as well as quantitative research drawn from questionnaires completed by service-users to gain a wider understanding of their experience within the organisation, the research suggests that HYPE is maintaining a very positive impact upon the children and young people. Our workshops and youth centres prove to be service-user led and are able to offer encouragement and support within a safe environment.

Positive effect on the quality of young people’s lives

In 2014 a report was commissioned to explore the effectiveness of HYPE’s services for the quality of life for young people living in the Wirral region. The initial aim of the research report was to provide an accurate account of the ways in which HYPE services affect the quality of life of young people living in the Wirral region.
