A formal account of an observation, investigation, finding, activity or any other type of information.
The Cost Calculator is a computer application currently being developed by the Centre for Child and Family Research, Loughborough University as a practical tool that has the potential to introduce greater transparency into the relationship between costs and outcomes of services for vulnerable children. Although there are plans to develop the model at a later date to encompass a wider population of children and a more extensive range of services, the current version is restricted to the costs of social care processes for looked after children.
