North West Expanding Foster Care Consortium - Support Care Cost...

In December 2014, the North West Expanding Foster Care Consortium (NWEFCC) commissioned iMPOWER to complete a rapid cost-benefit analysis of edge of care (“support care”) services delivered by three of their member councils: Blackburn & Darwen, Stockport and Wirral. The aim of this project is to determine the financial benefits of these services, and therefore help members of the consortium make informed decisions about expansion and/or investment in similar models. Wider benefits- such as improved outcomes for children and families, that may well be realised through keeping children out of care, have not been included in the scope of this analysis.
