The Mayor

The GLA has taken a number of steps to promote evidence-based integrated public service interventions, including:

• Publication of an economic case for investment (Early Years Interventions to address Health Inequalities in London - the Economic Case), demonstrating the long term savings to be achieved through integrated early years interventions and identifying the most impactful programmes.

• Part-funding Dartington Social Research Unit to translate a model developed by Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) enabling public bodies to select, deliver and predict the returns of evidence-based interventions that match local needs.

• The development of a London-wide framework for measuring impact ('Oracle'), to enable all agencies in London to better understand, demonstrate and share what works in improving outcomes for children.
