The Their Past Your Future 2 programme ran during 2007/10 and built on the success of the first programme which ran during 2004/07. It was an annual grant programme funded by The Big Lottery Fund of £1.5 million open to all museums, libraries and archives in England.

The programme evaluation was undertaken by the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG) at the University of Leicester focused on projects taking place in 2008/10 and used data collected during 2007-08 to give context. It aimed to answer two research questions:

1) Has activity within the programme increased young people’s knowledge and understanding of the impact of conflict?
2) What is the impact of participation in MLA TPYF2 programme for individuals/ communities?

The evaluation involved a project survey, project case studies and a qualitative response card survey of project participants.
