ARK was appointed by Black Country Talent Match (BCTM) to develop a social return on investment framework for this innovative project. We have worked closely with BCTM to develop a framework to measure the social impact that the project is delivering. the awards recognised the fantastic achievements the project has made in improving the lives of young people in the Black Country.

BCTM is a brilliant five-year programme funded by the Big Lottery. It is the largest of the 21 projects across the country to support young people aged 18-24 on their journey into employment.

Helen Scurr, ARK’s Director said “We are proud to be a part of this fantastic project, having a real impact on the lives of young people in the Black Country. The awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the success of these young people and the important work of all the partners in supporting these successes.”
