The following examples suggest ideas to help you create a culture and sport outcomes framework for children and young people. Don't be constrained by them; you can refer to the examples as much or as little as you want.
You may also wish to refer to the Young Foundation outcomes framework for young people's services. This framework is designed to support understanding and measurement of the connections between intrinsic personal and social development outcomes and longer-term extrinsic outcomes.
The outcomes triangle gives an overview of how culture and sport can contribute to better outcomes for children and young people. This example suggests local outcomes at service, intermediate and overarching strategic outcome levels.
The logic model illustrates the main links between service activities and local outcomes. This example suggests broad groupings of activities, benefits of culture and sport to individuals, communities and places, and how these in turn contribute to the achievement of intermediate and overarching strategic outcomes.
Logic model: children and young people
The evidence section of the framework underpins the outcomes triangle and logic model. It lists the sources of evidence that together best demonstrate the contribution of culture and sport to the outcomes.
You can supplement your local evidence from the suggested examples of validated national and international evidence or by searching the suggested databases.
The set of performance indicators (PIs) is how you measure the contribution of culture and sport to local outcomes. This example suggests PIs to help you select a ‘basket' of indicators appropriate to your own area using a ‘pick and mix' approach.
