social benefits for the community
The evidence available suggests that the M-PACT programme saves £2.76 in the first year after a family engages with the programme for every £1 spent. Even under pessimistic scenarios the programme still saves money in the first year. The actual saving is likely to be much higher given the assumption of only 12 months benefit and the cautious proxies chosen.

Evaluierung der Aktivität
The methodology chosen to undertake this assessment is Social Return on Investment (SROI). The SROI undertaken here was an evaluative SROI. The focus is on producing a methodology that can be accused of being overly cautious but with results that can stand up to scrutiny, particularly around the benefits that are claimed and the monetary values placed on them. In July 2013, a theory of change workshop was held with stakeholders from Essex, Tower Hamlets in London and Wiltshire to produce a change map. Following on from this, the researchers collected information on costs and benefits from these three areas plus Guernsey and Bournemouth to produce a more complete picture of what the costs and effectiveness from the project look like nationally.
