Cost Calculator for Children's Services - 2016 Re-Launch
7 June 2016

Over the last few months, the Centre for Child and Family Research has undertaken a programme of work to update the Cost Calculator for Children's Services (CCfCS) and, more recently, have been working with a number of local authorities to beta test the new version.

We are delighted that the CCfCS will soon be available as a free download for local authorities. The CCfCS facilitates comparisons between the relative value of different types of care, making it easier to estimate the potential benefits of introducing a range of alternative care packages. Analyses of costs with respect to the outcomes variables included in the CCfCS are also available.  The development team are just in the process of finalising the user guide for the tool. Further information on the tool can be found here: CCfCS.

We will continue to update the CCfCS website (www.CCfCS.org.uk) so keep an eye on that for any news about the tool and the research programme that underpins it.
