Innovation in Scaling Services in Children’s Social Care
Hayley Clark, senior business development manager, NSPCC
This seminar will provide an overview of the work of the NSPCC’s Scale-up unit. This is a new initiative created to support external organisations to implement services which have been developed by the NSPCC, with the ultimate aim of reaching more children and families. The session will include:
• An introduction to the lifecycle of service development at the NSPCC from evaluation through to scaling;
• The method they are using to take six evidenced-based programmes to scale nationally across the UK concurrently;
• How they are applying implementation and behavioural science theory and methodology to their scaling approach so that services become sustainable in the new organisations;
• The learning we are gathering from our initial implementation evaluations and about ‘what works’ in scaling in the social care sector.
Next seminar: Tuesday 3 July 2018, 4pm to 5pm
