Six key service pathways to child well-being help to create the conditions for improving children’s psychological and social well-being, and influencing positive outcomes over the longer term. They were found to have applicability in universal and targeted service settings.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

Project research has taken place over a period of 12 months across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and has involved a combination of secondary and primary research. For the former, the work was largely desk-based, including a literature review of key policy documents and academic literature to build on the available evidence base, such as the Children’s Plan, well-being literature, cross-cultural reports, previous Action for Children research and recent publications linked to the Good Childhood Inquiry, UNICEF’s work on child well-being and the work of the Early Years Commission. Secondary data analysis included the collation and analysis of OECD data on national investments in children and families, data on outcomes across a range of social issues and European Social Survey data on subjective well-being. The primary research comprised innovative research and analysis techniques and some more traditional approaches tailored to the specific project requirements. An economic analysis was carried out to identify the economic viability of shifting towards a more preventative approach to delivering children’s services in the UK. Moreover, six case studies of children’s services were undertaken, reflecting a geographical spread across the UK and a broad range of targeted and universal services. In each case, project staff was interviewed about the way the projects work with children and young people.
