Event description

Description

We invite friends and colleagues to celebrate Project Oracle’s achievements to date and find out what the next chapter has in store

Our story

Project Oracle was London’s first children and youth evidence hub, co-founded and managed by Georgie Parry-Crooke, London Metropolitan University and Stephen Bediako, The Social Innovation partnership. Last year Sue Holloway was appointed Chief Executive and has since overseen Project Oracle’s transition from short-term project to independent,sustainable charity securing further support from our loyal funders the Greater London Authority (GLA), Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and winning additional funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF).

What we do

Project Oracle empowers the youth sector to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people. We do this by supporting youth organisations and funders to produce, use and share high-quality evidence, so that together we can make better decisions to improve how interventions are funded and delivered. So far, we have worked with 200 organisations to help them achieve validation of over 220 different projects.  We have provided approximately 900 training opportunities, placed over 50 researchers in children and youth organisations, published 6 Synthesis Studies and 3 Evidence Digests and developed the innovative Impact Pioneers Programme. 

What’s next

In the past few years Project Oracle has gone from strength to strength, not only growing the quantity and quality of evidence in the youth sector but also developing as an organisation. With your support we hope to continue growing. In the next five years Project Oracle will improve and expand its services in London and open new bases in other UK cities.

Let’s celebrate!

We will be holding a launch event, in collaboration with London Metropolitan University. The event will mark Project Oracle's new start as an independent charity and set the scene for what’s to come. It will also be an opportunity to thank those that have supported us over the years and welcome new supporters who will help guide us towards a bright future.

We hope to see many of you there to toast Project Oracle’s proud achievements and celebrate new beginnings!
