The Social Research Unit launched its web-based resource Investing in Children on 18th September.
The SRU's model calculates the costs and benefits of various investment options relating to services for children. It was translated from a US-specific economic model to one suitable for the UK, with the support of a team of PBE economists from the National Audit Office.
We are delighted to see this work come to fruition, and fully support the SRU's approach which highlights the importance of high standards of evidence and appropriate caveats.
