Goals to Meet the Plan

 

Focus On Outcomes
Outcomes are very important to effective impact reporting. As an organisation we will move from just detailing our outputs, but showcase the outcomes and the most significant change stories. Our employees have been primed to think about how we are driving towards positive outcomes in everything that the organisation does.

 

Quantify Program Impact
Our aim at a local level is to positively impact the communities in which we operate and the country, region and the world at a broader level. For this to happen and to stand out, we will have to go beyond just “helping people.” But to quantify the number of people helped, with what methods, for what purpose, and at what cost.  The ability to clearly quantify our organisation’s specific impact will be at the centre of what we do every day

 

Tell Powerful Stories
Impact stories are an important part of how Shifting Your Mindset changes lives. These stories are often the preferred format for reporting in both award and outward submissions. We will thrive to make sure our impact stories are well-written, comprehensive, backed by data, and compelling

 

Commit To Data and Evaluation 
To execute and drive this strategy our organisation has made a serious a commitment to data. The need for high-quality, consistent data to effectively showcase our impact is central to this strategic plan. To achieve this milestone the organisation will ensure that every member of our organisation, from the Director, Managers, Officers, Volunteers, and Interns, are well-equipped to collect and analyse data. The ability to maintain correct data in one place will enable our organisation to function efficiently and effectively and will give it the capacity to attract additional funding and expand programs. 

 

Most importantly, this data repository helps us analyse and evaluate programs with a holistic perspective, manage and improve outcomes, consolidate results and align the organisation’s mission with our outcomes, impact, and stories

skills development programme

Our aim is to lead on a social reform movement that aims to improve the skills capabilities for the young people who are who are marginalised, excluded and disadvantaged by society. We will support them to develop the skills that align with their passion. We will take an activity-based approach to deliver workshops sessions that focus on employer expectations and the working environment. These will support the young people to prepare for vocational training, achieving an employability qualification, or for getting a job of their dreams and enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals

Shifting Your Mindset youth clubs

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way of life. It has shown mental health is a big element of  who we are and  we all depend on each other  as a collective in order for us to thrive as humanity.  We want to improve the emotional and mental health of young people especially during and post the COVID-19 pandemic. This will enable us to ensure the right help at the right time is provided especially in the poorest of communities but not excluding everyone affected by the pandemic. 

We will deliver various activities weekends and holidays in the interest of social welfare, designed to improve their physical and mental activity on their own terms. We will encourage the young people to try new activities and experiences in order to develop high levels of physical and mental literacy and an understanding of a healthy lifestyle and what mental health means. We will deliver inclusive activities that will encourage social exclusion, resilience and team work to influence to know that team work also applies in the communities.

Mental Wellbeing outreach programme

Globally drug abuse is a call for concern especially among teenagers. The use of drugs as a coping strategy for stress, trauma, peer pressure and self worth has resulted in drug addiction. This is used as a mask up and coping mechanism.In the poorest of countries due to poverty substance misuse has increased. Our ideology is focused on supporting individuals affected and affiliated with the use of drug substances and addiction.​​

  • We are campaigning tirelessly to raise awareness and promote understanding around drug abuse. 

  • We are Inspiring and empowering Peer Mentors who have overcome drug and alcohol misuse and are now giving their time to benefit others.  Please visit our  Shifting Your Mindset YouTube channel.

  • We are working to tackle the risk factors that damage our mental health state, and promote the protective factors that enhance our mental wellbeing. 

  • We are providing real hope and practical help through our drop in workshops and listening events

Parliament shadowing/mentorship programme  

Worldwide 124 million children/young people have not started school or dropped outs.

We will support the young people to experience the day in the life of an MP through shadowing or mentorship from a local MP. WE will support and encourage them to have platforms where they have a voice to be part of the policy making processes. We will work to provide opportunities for young people that are marginalised and would like to be Parliamentary leaders to actually have a feel as how it feels like. This will inspire the young to lead change in their community. The programme will be delivered in partnership with the local MP’s to address low levels of wellbeing amongst young people in the UK by empowering them to have a voice, be heard and give back to their local community.
