ACTION FOR CONSERVATION
Action for Conservation works with secondary schools to inspire and empower students to become the next generation of conservationists. We are passionate about bringing nature into the lives of all young people, regardless of circumstance. Our WildED programme, led by young conservation professionals working in the field, currently runs countrywide in schools in which an average of 49% of pupils are in receipt of pupil premium. 14/01/2018 £20,000
Outputs: 12 Youth Ambassador projects delivered, composed of 99 individual actions
Outcomes: 42 Individual actions demonstrated key skills attainment
Comment: High quality educational workshops in their primary programme have given students an in-depth awareness of environmental issues teachers may be unable to provide, which they can share with peers, family and friends. The number of students continuing to group camps and volunteering activities highlights the enthusiasm the programmes infuses, and partner charities giving inspiring experiences drive home the real life effect our actions have on nature.

Outputs: 83 Tonnes of food redistributed
Outcomes: 185694 Meals served
Comment: In 2018-19 it cost £587 for every tonne of food distributed and for every £1 spent, there were 3 meals served. This is impressive when compared to the NHS, where a study found their lowest price for 3 meals per person was £2.61 at Gloucester Royal Hospital. In addition, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions was up almost 3 times from 2017-18 with an extra 3,055 tonnes prevented from release. Management consultants, Bain and Company completed a pro-bono project to quantify the impact of food redistribution activities on society and concluded City Harvest’s social return on investment was £8 for every £1 of expenditure, up from £5.60 in 2017-18.

TEMPUS NOVO (MEANING NEW TIME)
Tempus Novo is an award-winning charity that works with serving prisoners and ex-offenders who want to change their lives by stopping the cycle of crime. Tempus Novo has a unique strength; it’s understanding and direct links into the British prison system. Founded in 2014 by two serving Senior Prison Officers at HMP Leeds, Tempus Novo operates within the prisons to identify offenders committed to transforming their lives. Upon release, these prisoners continue to work with Tempus Novo to gain employment whilst also receiving hands on mentorship and support for a minimum of 6 months. 05/02/2017 £15,000

Comment: Interventions meant 26 of the 103 ex-offenders who reached employment in 2018 were priority prolific offenders (those most embedded into the cycle of crime). Employment opportunities for those 103 beneficiaries significantly changed a large proportion of their lives, with 79 still in work after 6 months and only 1 returning to custody.
THE ACCESS PROJECT

Despite 90% of students coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, 85% of Year 13 pupils applied for a top third university and over 60% of these were offered places.
