A guide to commissioning children’s services for better outcomes


This guide illustrates how commissioning practices of public services must improve in order to make a difference to children and young people.

This guide is a supplement to a larger report, Backing the Future: why investing in children is good for us all, which is the culmination of a programme of research carried out by NEF and Action for Children.

This guide is designed to illustrate how our call for governments to back the services that make a difference to children’s lives can be supported by improvements to commissioning practices.
