Impact for Otago Youth - A Scoping Report for the Otago Community Trust

Otago Community Trust has been moving towards ways to create impact for young people through funding mechanisms.

The Trust has long identified youth development as a priority funding area for our region. Over time, our focus on youth has developed, refined and evolved, and in 2017 we positioned Youth Health, Wellbeing and Employment as a key Funding for Change strategic priority.

In early 2019, we commissioned Mātāwai Consultancy and Gemma Griffin Consultancy to undertake research into the sector.

This research was undertaken to  help trustees gain a clearer understanding of who and what Otago Community Trust has been funding, and what real outcomes have been generated for the region’s young people and their families as a result of this funding. Otago Community Trust wishes to be bolder and more strategic to meet the areas of most need.
