In the context of increased debate about early interventions in the UK, the Local Government Association (LGA) commissioned NFER to produce guidance on what constitutes a good business case for early interventions and how it should be assessed. The guidance will be of use to local authorities (LAs) and their partners in their decision-making and planning on early interventions.
It is based on a review of the evidence base; a description of the measures and indicators used in assessing the long-term benefits of early interventions; an audit of the approaches and models used to measure the economic value of early interventions.
- how to make or assess a business case for early interventions
- how to make an economic case for early interventions
- the key considerations in evaluating the value for money (VfM) of early interventions
- definitions of key VfM terminology.
