Measuring Outcomes in the ‘New’ Children's Services

By Nick Axford and Vashti Louise Berry

Abstract

This article seeks to help senior local policy-makers, managers and practitioners in children's services to develop robust but realistic and manageable strategies for measuring outcomes in a multi-disciplinary context. Drawing on orthodox research methods, it sets out strategies for measuring outcomes in children's services at individual child, service and community levels. It is intended to show how, in a given local jurisdiction, different approaches to measuring outcomes could fit together logically and within a reasonable budget, so creating an outcome culture and contributing to the development and integration of services. The principles outlined would also apply to adult services
