In the current financial and political climate it is vital to demonstrate service productivity, positive family outcomes and value for money. The cost calculator tool helps you to estimate the costs and predicted savings of delivering intensive interventions to families. The aim is to give a broad estimate based upon a list of specified unit costs.
We created the initial Family Savings Calculator when we were part of the DfE and we regularly update this. We have worked with DCLG, Ecorys and New Economy and have recently aligned the costs to ensure that local areas are able to provide the data required to the DCLG Troubled Families team. At the same time these areas can have a locally in depth and useful tool which helps services and partners to estimate the costs and predicted savings of delivering intensive interventions to families with multiple problems.
We provide a basic version of this FREE. Please contact us to request a copy.

We can also provide a bespoke calculator specific to your needs to include:
