Since Tomorrow’s People was founded, we have repeatedly opened ourselves up to scrutiny by economists. Most recently, through Pro Bono Economics, a team of volunteer economists from the Bank of England independently evaluated our youth employment programmes over seven years from 2007 to 2014. Their report shows the outstanding social return on investment these programmes produce – £380 for every £100 invested from 2007-2014.
The report shows that our impact continued to increase during and post recession, producing £415 for every £100 invested between 2012 and 2014.
Economists found our work with disadvantaged young people makes a significant contribution to the economy. You can read the full report here.
