    2) Measures of activity - numbers of children and young people supported

    Over the past year Epic has engaged with 2,894 young people from ages 6 up to 25 with life long learning difficulty and/or disability (LLDD). This is made up of 59% male, 41% female, who have engaged in b38,932 attendances in a wide range of projects and activities from kayaking to dance.

    We have worked with 339 children and young people classed as deprived in Kensington and Chelsea and 111 classed as having LLDD. Through working with us, young people have undergone 799 accreditations from subjects such as AQA’s in Sex & Relationship Education to NVQ Level 2’s in Plumbing.

     


    3) Social return on investment

    In 2015, Epic has shown we are a thriving social business creating value for young people and communities:

    • Delivering 199,535 hours of group sessions with young people
    • Our targeted employability programmes were responsible for 85% of  participants progressing to education, employment or training, and remaining in positive destination for at least 3 months afterwards

    Using Social Return on Investment Principles:

    • For every £1 Epic invested in employability support to young people, we  created an extra £2.24 in social value through improvements in young people’s health and well-being, earning and savings to the state

    • Applying Economic Value on Investment principles, our volunteer programme generated £43,315 of social value
    • Percentage of pupils achieving Level 2 or above in English was 67%. In 2015 the percentage was 65.4 for MAINSTREAM schools
    • Percentage of pupils achieving Level 2 English & Maths was 29% 12 times more than the expected for similar provisions in Inner London (2.3%)
    • 100% of our KS4 students achieved 5 GCSEs including English and Maths. The national average for MAINSTREAM schools is 89.7% (11.7% for similar provisions in inner-London)
