CORC were commissioned by NHS England to conduct an independent evaluation of Vanguard, which is being piloted across 13 boroughs in London. The overarching aims of the evaluation are:

  1. To examine the overall impact of the Vanguard pilot as a whole on children, young people and their parents and carers, workforce and organisations.

  2. To explore best practice and learning that can be used to develop recommendations to inform service improvement and the future sustainability of Vanguard.

The evaluation runs from 2022 to December 2025. Results expect to be published Spring/Summer 2026. 

This brief case study however shows how young people have and will continue to participate.
