      Abstract

      This article will provide an illustration of the way in which St. Andrew’s Project, Camphill Aberdeen works with an outcomes measurement framework termed ‘Outcomes that Matter’. Therapeutic support is negotiated with children, their families and supporting agencies following a comprehensive ecological assessment. The intended outcomes for any short or medium term intervention are then agreed with those involved. Achievement profiles are drawn up with each young person on a weekly basis, forming the basis of an outcome-based intervention plan. An example will be provided of recent work with a young person, in which the ‘Outcomes that Matter’ recording format was used collaboratively when working with a particular practice issue.

      Outcomes that Matter © for Children and Young People in Out-of-Home Care

       Thom Garfat,  Leon C. Fulcher (corresponding) (2013)
      Child, youth and family services require that outcomes are measured, although confusion persists around which outcomes really matter. Inputs, outputs and outcomes are frequently used interchangeably, while carers are rarely given voice and recognition for what they are doing in daily life-space encounters with young people in out-of-home care. An Outcomes that Matter recording format is introduced, which attends to developmental outcomes achieved by young people from week to week, positioning carers alongside these young people at the centre of corporate parenting endeavours.
