The Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme aims to test and share effective ways of supporting vulnerable children and young people who need help from children’s social care services. IPC has been heavily involved in the evaluation of the scheme.

This evaluation concerns a project undertaken by Cornwall Council and its partners to explore the potential of an Alternative Delivery Model (ADM) to achieve its strategic goal for greater integration of health, social care and education services to further improve support for families in localities across the county.

After careful consideration the ADM was rejected as a governance vehicle but more integrated services were introduced under a new ‘Together for Families’ Directorate within the Council which included staff transferred from the NHS.
