Example text

As our methodology has subsequently extended to cover costs for all children in need, we have used costs developed by other studies in the initiative as a starting point for further cost calculations (see Chapter 9). It should also be noted that our original study focused on developing unit costs for the provision of social care. However, social work interventions are only some among a range of services provided to looked after children, many of whom, as subsequent chapters will show, also require additional support from education, health, child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) and other agencies.

We also encountered a number of other difficulties in matching authorities. While the first authorities selected fitted the blueprint on paper, not all agreed to participate. As the second or third best match was invited to join the study, the similarities and differences between the authorities were less apparent. In particular, several London boroughs declined the invitation to participate on the very real grounds that they were short-staffed and under-resourced, and the matching process had virtually to be abandoned in the attempt to find recruits.

Other out-of-area placements, however, may be at long distances from the responsible authority, thus requiring extensive travelling time and higher levels of activity from professionals to support them properly, both of which elements add to their costs (Cooper 2002). Out-of-authority placements also tend to be unpopular with children: the young people we interviewed made comments such as the following concerning them: I’m happy in this home, but not in the area. It’s too far away from my friends… I’ve no family or friends nearby and few people in my family here.
