This report presents the findings of the independent phase one, process evaluation of the Getting Out for Good (GOFG) project at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) which operated between January 2017 and July 2019. This section introduces the GOFG project, its context, and explains the aims and objectives of the evaluation and the evaluation methodology. The GoFG project is funded by ‘I Define Me’ and was established in spring 2017. It seeks to engage with G&YW (14 – 24 years) at risk of gang involvement in the Greater Manchester area. Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) was the lead organisation of the GoFG project. The project was co-designed by MMU with The Averment Group. The project specifically targets G&YW who have been identified as being at risk of serious gang related youth violence, sexual exploitation and abuse, and modern slavery. The G&YW who are referred to the project are given an intensive three-month programme of mentoring, advice and activities by the charity Positive Steps together with local sport, art and cultural providers. With a focus on boxing and football, supported by youth theatre and film-making, the G&YW help their peers to address pathways into and out of gang involvement, devising their own solutions through up-skilling and resilience building
