Exploration of the costs and impact of the Common Assessment Framework

The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) is a standardised approach for the assessment of children and their families, to facilitate the early identification of additional needs and to promote a coordinated service response.

The study aims to explore the impact of the CAF on both children and families and professionals, and examines how far a ‘bottom up’ cost calculation methodology could be extended to include the costs of the Common Assessment Framework.
