The overall aim of the research was to evaluate the contribution of BW to young people, employers, society and in meeting national outcomes. Evidence was gathered through interviews with: 36 young people participating in the BW programme; 32 employers providing placement opportunities for young people; senior Barnardo’s managers and those involved with day-to-day programme delivery within the Edinburgh, Dundee, Renfrewshire and Inverness BW offices (14 people). The report also uses data supplied by Barnardo’s on programme outcomes for participants and an analysis of levels of deprivation amongst the client group.
