Young people helping others: Evaluation of the HALO programme of help, advice and legal opportunity

Coram's HALO programme gives 16 to 25-year olds the opportunity to help other children and young people.

The programme operates across the Coram group of charities and provides a platform for young people to help increase children and young people’s access to information and advice. It provides the opportunity for children and young people to find out about their legal rights. It also seeks to enable more motivated, skilled young people to work in the children’s rights sector.

Between July 2016 and March 2019 187 young people were recruited to HALO. They filled 16 different types of paid and volunteer roles across eight different Coram areas of service. These 187 young people helped 10,413 beneficiaries directly.

This report reviews the HALO programme during the initial funding period of 2016 to 2019. The report helps to indicate the direction of the programme, which is now sustained with diversified funding.
