Lasting Solutions – Outcome Evaluation
The Family Intervention Project (FIP) is a service designed to work with families living in South East Wales that are facing eviction or other enforcement action due to anti-social behaviour. The service takes a whole family approach and combines intensive support to confront and change behaviour and avoid potential sanctions.
This successful service has recently been evaluated independently by Cordis Bright Consulting, the report provides an initial outcome evaluation of Lasting Solutions FIP, including early evidence on the cost effectiveness and cost efficiency of the FIP. The evidence in this evaluation supports the following conclusions:
Conclusion 1 – Outcomes: Lasting Solutions is achieving many positive outcomes for families.
Conclusion 2 – Cost effectiveness: Lasting Solutions offers exceptional value for money, offering a net rate of return on investment of 426%.
Families referred to the project will have reached a ‘critical’ stage in that they may be about to lose their home, or children may be at risk of being taken into care. There may already be a number of services involved with these families and the FIP is not seeking to duplicate services but to link with existing services, partnerships and problem solving groups. Please see the report to read more about the success this service is having across South East Wales.
