JST celebrated their 10-year anniversary during 2022, they commissioned ARK Consultancy (ARK) to measure the social return on investment (SROI) and social impact delivered across a range of programmes, activities, services and interventions.

During the past 10 years, JST has worked with thousands of individuals living in local communities, across a wide range of support projects. Due to the complexity of support provided it has been challenging for JST to evidence the full impact experienced by an individual. However, the case studies collected provide evidence that those people who engage with JST go on to lead happier, healthier, more independent lives whilst contributing back to their own community and society.

This report evaluates the outcomes achieved as a direct result of the interventions, activities and programmes delivered by JST since 2012. ARK have reviewed JST data and information captured from programme impact reports, participant feedback and other evaluation processes.
