In June 2022, as part of a project funded by the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), the Irish Football Association Foundation (IFA) commissioned Ulster University (UU) to conduct an evaluation of the ‘Game Changer’ programme. This report has been supported by public agencies, community organisations, the IFA, and the Belfast Giants, its sporting partner on the programme. Facilitators and organisers across these groups provided advice on the direction of the evaluation and participated in in-depth semi-structured interviews. Young people that participated in the Game Changer programme also assisted the evaluation by sharing their experiences in focus groups and semi-structured interviews. The core research team consisted of Dr Brendan Coyle, Dr Conor Murray and Professor Gavin Breslin.
