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.
If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
GDP, inflation and the government deficit reign supreme in the budget - but are they giving us the results that we want?
