Medical Research Council - Home  National Evaluation of the children's fund: Summary of key learning points from NECF reports on participation, prevention and multi-agency working - Brief : The Department for Education The Children's Fund (CF) exists to promote multi-agency work in preventative services for children and young people at risk from social exclusion. This five-page NECF brief was commissioned in December 2002 as a response to CF’s progress, with the resulting research set to continue until September 2006. The information highlights points of interest pertinent to the different groups engaged with the Children's Fund, and identifies emerging learning for developing policy and practice. Three strands of the work provided by the Children’s Fund are outlined. These are the assessment of the impact of the Children's Fund on the prevention of social exclusion of young people, an examination of those same processes, and a system of knowledge management which creates a two-way flow of information between the NECF and its stakeholders.
