We’ve been scaling up our services so we can reach more children and families. Emma Belton explains how and why we’re evaluating the process
Over the last 5 years the NSPCC has been developing, delivering and testing a wide range of services for children and families. We’ve identified several programmes so far which have a strong evidence base, including:
- Domestic Abuse, Recovering Together (DART)
- Baby Steps
- Letting the Future In
- Graded Care Profile 2
- Reunification practice framework
- Harmful sexual behaviour framework.
We want to work with partner organisations so that more children and families can benefit from these services. We are calling this process “scale-up”.
We also want to know whether other organisations are able to successfully adopt and deliver these services. I’m going to discuss why it’s so important to evaluate scale-up, how we’ve done this and what we’ve learnt so far.
We plan to scale up more programmes during the next 5 years so we’re always working to improve the process.
