Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


NCT is committed to improving the lives of children, with the vision ‘Children, Young People and Families at the heart of all we do – in every action we take and every decision we make’. Their outcome framework is co-ordinated into four areas: 1. Live safe, be safe, 2. Fulfil potential, 3. Develop resilience, and 4. Enjoy good health and wellbeing. This outcome framework is reliant on eight conditions for success (co-created through workforce sessions with the Chief Executive):
1. Process
2. Communication
3. Environment
4. Culture
5. Partnerships
6. Empowerment
7. People
8. Tools
This outcome framework enables the development and delivery of high-quality social care services to children and young people in the county of Northamptonshire within the resources made available by the Council. In conjunction with partner agencies, NCT aim to achieve the following outcomes:
• To promote the welfare and safeguard children in line with key children’s legislation and statutory guidance
• To provide family support to vulnerable children and their families to enable them to cope with difficulties
• To support children to live safely with their immediate and extended families wherever possible
• To meet the needs of looked after children and those leaving care
• To support disabled children and their families.
Our research aims to evaluate NCT’s Early Help projects with a focus on the impact it has on children, carers, and the wider community.
