The Local Authority Research Consortium (LARC), established in 2007, supports children’s service authorities in using and conducting research to evaluate progress, to inform practice, share findings and make recommendations locally and nationally. This report contains the collective findings of the 24 authorities involved in the LARC2 project, which uses the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) as a proxy to explore the effective integration between targeted and universal services, looking at outcomes for children, young people and their families.
