On this page, you will find the learning arising from the Making a step change for young carers and their families: Putting it into practice project related to the theme of Measuring Impact in your Local Authority, including key messages, tools and resources.
Being clear about what to measure is key to determining whether the systems in place within a local authority for identifying, assessing and supporting young carers are having a positive impact. This briefing sets out the challenges local authorities face for measuring the impact of a ‘collaborative, whole system, whole family approach’ to supporting young carers and families. It suggests approaches, key measures and potential sources of data that could be useful in understanding whether support in a local authority is working effectively. Read our briefing on Measuring Impact.
- Measuring impact in your local authority is of course related to measuring caring activities.
