Achieving our goals
We use 3 types of interventions to achieve our goals.
- Primary (universal) interventions
Stopping abuse before it occurs, such as campaigning to raise awareness of what sexual abuse is.
- Secondary (targeted) interventions
Reducing the impact of an on-going issue, such as delivering services which help families experiencing domestic abuse.
- Tertiary (specialist) interventions
Helping children after abuse has occurred.
We're committed to robustly evaluating Together for Childhood with the development of a multi-stranded evaluation for each area. Local evaluation teams are embedded in each site and we aim to learn lessons from the implementation of Together for Childhood. We'll also demonstrate what works in preventing child abuse by evaluating the most effective and sustainable approaches.
The evaluation activity covers 3 strands.
A process evaluation will explore the planning and setting-up of Together for Childhood and examine how the initiative has been implemented in each of the sites.
This will help determine how Together for Childhood has helped prevent abuse and neglect, in the short, medium and long-term.
This will investigate the costs of delivering Together for Childhood and how cost effective it is.
At the heart of Together for Childhood is continuous learning and improvement. This is in contrast to more traditional models where learning and development are seen as the final step and the end result of the evaluation.
