Project Oracle to be launched as a charity at London Met

The organisation’s application to become a charity was approved earlier this year and will be launched as a charity next month.

Date: 26 October 2016

Project Oracle will be launched as a charity at London Metropolitan University on 2 November.

Project Oracle was created in 2012 to address a gap in understanding about which youth projects work and why. It began as a partnership between London Metropolitan University and the Social Innovation Partnership, a trusted advisor to public, private and social sector organisations.

The project was co-founded and managed by Professor Georgie Parry-Crooke, Emerita Professor at London Met and part of the Centre for Social Evaluation Research, and Stephen Bediako from The Social Innovation partnership.

Professor Georgie Parry-Crooke said: “Project Oracle has come far on its own journey from an experimental start through to achieving charitable status in a relatively short time.

“I am delighted to have been part of this and look forward to Project Oracle's continued facilitation of the supply and demand for evidence which helps us all to better understand outcomes for young people.”

The organisation will officially be launched as a charity in London Met’s Great Hall on Wednesday 2 November at 6:30pm. The launch will be opened by Professor John Raftery, Vice Chancellor at London Met, and Dr Elizabeth Charman, Pro Vice Chancellor of Academic Outcomes.

Tickets are free but must be booked on the Eventbrite page. Places are limited.
