About This Report:

The aim of this evaluation is to use the principles of Social Return on Investment (SROI) to evaluate the value of the Leicestershire Twenty Twenty scheme.Twenty Twenty is a charity that specialises in education and support for disadvantaged young people in Leicestershire between the ages of 11 and 18.The Mentoring scheme facilitates adult mentors and young people mentees to meet on a weekly basis. The SROI calculation found that Twenty Twenty mentoring creates a Social Return of approximately £5 for every £1 invested. 82% of this value is to young people, and 14% to the police.The outcomes that created the most value were:

  • Young people at risk of ASB who are able to engage with a mentor, feel
    positive about themselves, increase aspirations and independently deal with
    difficult situations and stay strong;
  • Young people are able to improve their relationships with family and friends
  • Reduced cost of crime/ ASB to the police; and
  • Reduced cost of NEET young people to DWP.
