Action for Conservation work with young people from diverse backgrounds through environmental workshop activities in schools that enable students to take conservation actions in their communities. They provide learning materials, organise work experience placements, and build online networks to develop a proactive youth conservation movement in the UK with a culture of greater awareness and participation. 14/01/2018 £20,000
Comment: The programmes run in the final school term of 2020 were effected by the pandemic and led to lower impact than predicted. This was combined with changes in what was measured in hopes to benefit long term growth of programmes and they now only capture their Ambassadors actions taken rather than projects complete. Furthermore, they are now more stringent in outcome thresholds that also led to a slight drop in these numbers relative to actions taken. High quality educational workshops in their main programme have given students an in-depth awareness of environmental issues teachers may be unable to provide, and which they can share with friends and family. Core behavioural changes in young people are where they primarily measure impact and their hopes are that by instilling values in nature and conservation, young people will cause systematic change in the long term. The number of students continuing to attend group camps and volunteering activities highlights the enthusiasm the programme infuses, and partner charities providing practical, real-life experiences drive home the effects humans are having on nature.Outputs:

Comment: Pregnant women in the prison system and community groups that use Birth Companions services may have to deal with multiple issues, coming from a range of disadvantaged backgrounds. Though these challenges are significant, data collected through surveys consistently indicates the charity is providing high levels of practical support and guidance to a growing number of women. This not only adds ease to the birthing process but improves the mental health and wellbeing of the women they work with, which will have a knock-on effect to their babies lives.Outputs:
