Publication of the pilot evaluations

What Works for Children’s Social Care Centre (WWCSC) are delighted to announce that they have published findings from their pilot evaluations of three of the SFPC programmes.

This pilot evaluation seeks to understand how Family Safeguarding has been delivered and the facilitators and barriers which affect delivery in a new area, as well as acceptability of the model, mechanisms of change and potential benefits.

Discover how the findings from the Pilot Evaluation of Family Valued in Darlington can help other local authorities during their implementation of the approach.

The purpose of the pilot evaluation was to provide key insights into the early roll-out of the approach, to support subsequent local authorities who are embarking on their own No Wrong Door journey.

Stepped Wedge trial

WWCSC are utilising a Stepped Wedge, Randomised Design approach to evaluating the impact of the three models being implemented in the SFPC Programme. The animation below provides more information on what this means for the evaluation process and the local authorities involved!
