Costs and Outcomes in Children's Social Care

Costs and Outcomes in Children's Social Care

Messages from Research

by Ian Sinclair and Jennifer K Beecham

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 15/10/2006

  $50.93
Care services for children depend on a limited supply of resources; it is vital that these are used to best effect. This book considers the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of these services and their contribution to children's well-being.

The book presents the findings of a set of original research studies. It looks at services provided by the statutory, for-profit and voluntary sectors, examining the way they are delivered and how resources are distributed. It examines the cost of providing particular services, the extent to which they improve outcomes for children and the degree to which they can be considered cost-effective. It explores what changes can and should be made to improve efficiency, paying particular attention to the possible contributions of early intervention and better co-ordination. From the research findings, Jennifer Beecham and Ian Sinclair draw key messages for practice for the use of resources and for future research in this area.

This is an invaluable book for those practitioners, policy makers, managers, who are concerned with social care services for children.
