The cost effectiveness of Action for Children's Intensive Family Support Services: final report

Report that details the findings of a study carried out by the Centre for Child and Family Research (CCFR) to explore the cost effectiveness of providing Action for Children Intensive Family Support (IFS) Services.

The research was conducted on a sample of 43 families in two local authority areas. The research explores the costs incurred to local authorities prior to the families accessing the IFS service, during the intervention and after the IFS provision ceased. These costs have been bought together with data on the outcomes achieved by the families in the sample during the data collection time period.
