What is it? A free-to-use statistical toolkit presenting statistics at the local level (compared to regional and national averages) for indicators that fall under the umbrella of ‘Social Justice.’ Available from http://www.cesi.org.uk/social-justice- toolkit http://www.cesi.org.uk/social-justice- toolkit
How the project came about DWP commissioned toolkit by the Social Justice Strategy team at the Department. Following the publication of the Social Justice: Transforming Lives and the Social Justice Outcomes Framework. The Social Justice Outcomes Framework published October 2012, and updated in April 2013, represents the next step in developing the Social Justice vision –Highlights our priorities, how we plan to measure progress, and together with the strategy, define what we want to achieve The outcome framework is structured along the same lines as Social Justice: transforming lives. There are five themes relating to the various chapters: supporting families; keeping young people on track; importance of work; supporting disadvantaged adults; delivery. -Five areas inherently complex – many interrelated factors
The framework measures 1. The percentage of all children who are not living with both of their birth parents, by age of the child. 2. The extent to which children from disadvantaged households achieve the same educational outcomes as their more advantaged peers (in development). 3. The percentage of offenders aged under 18 who go on to reoffend. 4. The proportion of benefit claimants who have received working-age benefits for at least 3 out of the past 4 years (focusing on those capable of work or work-related activity). 5. Drug use, employment and offending outcomes for those presenting for treatment for drug or alcohol treatment over a three-year period 6. The proportion of adult offenders: –who do not reoffend within 12 months (available) and –the proportion who are in work 12 months later (in development) 7. The size of the social investment market. –In 2011/12, the UK social investment market grew by almost a quarter to £202 million through 765 deals.
Social Justice Themes Aim of the project was to develop indicators around five key themes of Social Justice identified by the Social Justice Outcomes Framework: 1.Supporting families; 2.Keeping young people on track; 3.The importance of work; 4.Supporting the most disadvantaged adults; and 5.Delivering Social Justice.
Key criteria for indicators Relevance – to one (or more) of the five themes – But doesn’t need to be a framework measure Relevance – to (local) practitioners Timeliness – ideally at least quarterly Availability at local level Robustness (especially if not govt source) Ease of sourcing and updating
Background context Demographics – life expectancy, ethnicity Headline labour market indicators Qualification levels Index of multiple deprivation
Keeping young people on track Number of juvenile first-time entrants to the criminal justice system Youth re-offending Pupil absence Number achieving a Good Level of Development in EYFSP NEET young people Attainment at KS2 (attainment gap: eligible for free school meals and not) Attainment at KS4 (attainment gap: eligible for free school meals and not) Under 18 alcohol-specific hospital admissions Number of looked after children Education, health and offending outcomes for looked after children
The importance of work Number of claimants of different benefit groups Tax credit claims Work Programme attachment levels Work Programme performance or JSA off-flow indicators
