About the partners

Realising Ambition is led by Catch22 with the Dartington Social Research Unit, Substance and the Young Foundation as consortium partners.


Catch22 logoAs the lead partner Catch22 is coordinating the effective delivery of the programme and the support offered from other consortium partners. We are ensuring organisations are delivering against agreed plans and budgets, taking up the support provided by partners and recording their findings on replication. We also have the strategic coordinating role of disseminating the learning from the programme with key policy makers and influencers.

Dartington Social Research Unit

The Dartington Social Research UnitDartington Social Research Unit Logo is working with projects to help refine interventions and develop processes to ensure their faithful replication. This has included helping to refine logic models and theories of change, developing manuals, ensuring objective processes are in place to ensure only eligible children, young people and families receive the intervention, and supporting the design of fidelity monitoring protocols.


Substance-smallSubstance is supporting each organisation to report the inputs, outputs and outcomes of their work through access to Views, an online programme management and outcome reporting platform. This ensures all projects can meet the monitoring and reporting requirements of the Realising Ambition programme and share evidence of their work and the difference it is making more widely.

The Young Foundation
