The over arching aim of the Young People Together project is to bring together the expertise of three leading organisations in the fields of learning disability, autism and education to promote the health, wellbeing and social inclusion of children and young people with additional educational needs and their families. The goal is to encourage a step change in the provision of out of school activities, which will make them more accessible to this marginalised and disadvantaged group.

The project has now completed its first year and has evaluated each activity and key stage in order to; assess the extent to which it has delivered as planned; examine what has worked well to date; and identify what lessons we can learn as the project is rolled out over the next four years. This self evaluation addresses the six key evaluation questions outlined in the project business plan. The methodology includes an analysis of project records, beneficiary feedback, evaluation sessions with children and young people and stakeholder questionnaire responses.
