DfE releases evaluation and summary reports for the Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme

The Department for Education has published evaluation findings form the 98 projects funded under the Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme (CSCIP).

The CSCIP was launched in 2014 to test and share effective ways of supporting vulnerable children and young people who need help from children’s social care services. In total, 98 projects were supported through £200 million of investment.

The programme which ran from 2014 to 2020 focused on the following key criteria:

  • improving life chances for children who receive help from the social care system
  • encouraging innovation by experimenting and replicating successful new approaches
  • creating better incentives for innovation and ways of sharing what works
  • creating a strong evidence base
  • getting better value across the children’s social care sector

Evaluation findings from all projects within the programme can be found here.
