Everyday Cares: Daily Centres in Italy and the UK

Charities working to improve children’s well-being can struggle to measure the difference they are making. With this is mind, Everyday cares contains a framework that so-called daily centres in Italy, and similar charities elsewhere, can use to assess whether they are likely to be successful. A daily centre is a place where children, many of whom struggle at school or have poor home lives, go on a regular basis to take part in supervised activities, ranging from homework help to sports and drama.

As well as the framework, the report suggests what data charities could collect to see whether they are having an impact on children’s well-being and other important aspects of their lives. The research, carried out for and in collaboration with Fondazione Oliver Twist Onlus, an Italian grant-maker, compares daily centres in Italy with similar charities in the UK. The report contains a number of examples of particularly innovative and effective approaches to allow charities in both countries to learn from each other.
