This seminar will explore the relationship between the needs, services received and outcomes for children and families supported by children’s social care (CSC) services.
Drawing on evidence from a programme of research, the presentation will explore the development of a standardised, nationally applicable conceptual framework to follow a child’s journey through different parts of the CSC system, as well as an examination of how practitioners use their time, and whether this should, and can be reconfigured.
The seminar will also consider the application of the conceptual framework and use of ‘time use data’ to estimate unit costs for CSC and relate these to needs and outcomes.
