About this project

Outcomes for Children (OfC) is our Certified Benefit Corporation. It develops and implements innovative Social Impact Bond contracts with their Social Investment Partner, Bridges Ventures, to improve impacts for beneficiaries and drive system and cultural change in the social care arena.

OfC works alongside existing Local Authority services to embed new ways of working through a strong payment by results model. One such example is the OfC Birmingham contract, working with Birmingham City Council to give vulnerable young people the opportunity to ‘Step Down’ from residential care to specialist foster care.

This contract offers outcome based payment by results based on the key indicator of placement stability, measured after a 52 week focussed programme of support. Other impacts include personal outcomes for the young people themselves such as improved school attendance and attitudes to learning, involvement in positive activities, reductions in offences and fewer episodes of being missing from care.

Other exciting new contracts being delivered include the North Somerset ‘Turning the Tide’ programme, delivering embedded family support interventions using the Polaris Children’s Services Safer Stronger Families model.

Cabinet Member for Children and Family Services, Birmingham City Council

The Outcomes for Children service gives real wrap-around support to both the foster carer and the young person to ensure a stable and sustainable placement, and allows for a much more planned matching and transition process.
