The Outcomes Data Booklet is an in-house analysis tool created to measure the effectiveness of interventions delivered to young people during their time at Clayfields. It is directly linked to our in-house Assessment Packs that young people are asked to complete at the beginning and end of their journey with us. It has been created over the past year and is still open to amendment and development as both the team and the needs of the young people change.

The purpose of the booklet is to keep all centre wide staff aware of our most up to date re-offending rates, analyse the effectiveness of interventions being delivered and look at future work planning. It contains all outcome data on both YJB and Welfare young people which has been collected directly from them through the Assessment Packs. YOT teams and Social Care teams are utilised to gain information on residents that have left us in order to gain the data for our re-offending figures and welfare leavers.

The information in the booklet is used to help inform staff of areas of work that are successful, areas that need further research and design, or areas that need further improvement. By updating the Outcomes Data Booklet every three months, we can make sure that we try to keep on top of improvement areas quickly. The analysis can be broken down into minute detail and cross referenced in whatever format best suits, it also means that we can explore particularly why something has or has not been successful from various angles.



Implementing the Practice:

  • The Outcomes Data Booklet is updated and produced every three months and discussed in depth at our Business SMT meetings. It is produced by the Intervention Team as this is the team that has responsibility for the data collection with the young people directly. A display of the information is then kept up to date in the non-secure area for all staff to see.
  • The validity of the data itself is dependent on two things. The young people engaging with the Assessment Packs honestly before they leave Clayfields, and YOTs/Social Care providing us with information on young people that have returned to the community.
