Family Hubs: Designing Outcome Frameworks

Over 150 people attended the Family Hubs Network’s Designing Outcome Frameworks webinar, where panellists, representing four local authorities across England, gave presentations and took part in a Q&A discussion, answering attendees questions.

Panellists’ presentations explored the stages of the process involved in creating an outcomes framework:

  • ‘Deciding strategic outcomes’, ‘identifying the relevant cohort, what to measure and how’, ‘developing the underlying theory of change’ – by Adrian Coggins, Head of Wellbeing and Public Health, Essex County Council, Richard Comerford, Managing Director of Essex Child and Wellbeing Service, and Hayley Hill, Contract and Performance Manager, Virgin Care
  • ‘Developing the system and deciding relevant interventions’, ‘determining intervention-level outputs and outcomes’ – by Denise Beevers, Locality Service Manager, Doncaster Council
