Introduction: In 2017 a Research in Practice (RiP) Change Project, conducted with RiP Partners from 19 local authorities in England, explored the development of a tool for calculating the financial costs of delivering services for young people who are on the ‘edge of care’.The Change Project method applies an action research approach to developing evidence-informed, practical resources by bringing together experts from across practice and research.
