The Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme aimed to:
- increase the quality of services so that children who need help from the social care system have better life chances
- help local authorities achieve better value for money across children’s social care
- ensure there are stronger incentives and mechanisms for innovation, experimentation and replication of successful new approaches
This final evaluation report provides an overview of the Innovation Programme evaluation findings to date and demonstrates progress against the programme’s aims.
The findings will help children’s social care practitioners, service managers and providers continue innovating or to revise their approach to improving their social care for the future.
