As part of the funding awarded to the FDAC National Unit from the DfE Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme the National Unit partner agency, the Centre for Justice Innovation undertook  a financial analysis of the London FDAC. Their research demonstrates that FDACs save money for the taxpayer as well as being a better way to help children be cared for safely by their parents.

The report shows that savings generated by FDAC exceed the cost of the service within two years of the start of the case and for each £1 spent, £2.30 is saved.
