Unit cost data that brings together more than 600 unit cost estimates in 1 place, covering 5 categories:
- education and skills
- crime and housing
- social services
The costs can be used by local commissioners, charitable organisations and social enterprises to inform:
- social impact bond proposals for new interventions or the redesign of existing public services
- feasibility studies and evaluations
Most of the unit cost estimates are based on national research and so may not correspond exactly to local costs. In order to develop locally specific data, users may want to undertake research into costs in their area, or apply an appropriate discount to account for regional variations.
