The health of each of the organisations delivering in Realising Ambition has been assessed using the Young Foundation Organisational Health Scorecard (OHS). This examines organisational health along four domains:
- Skill and will – considers organisational capacity, capability and confidence to deliver the service
- Organisational social impact – looks at engagement with children and young people, and organisational focus on outcomes
- Ability to replicate – ensures understanding of the service’s underpinning rationale and that well-developed networks and partnerships exist in the replication area
- Financial sustainability – supports clear business planning underpinned with a compelling business model to enable further replication.
Each project has received support from the Realising Ambition consortium over the course of the programme to develop its organisational health in order to be able to replicate effectively.
