Payment by Results (PbR) entails funding or partially funding an intervention or service on the basis of the results it achieves, rather than on the cost of the activities or outputs it delivers. PbR is increasingly being seen as a mechanism to improve the impact of services available to children and families – including through the provision of Children’s Centres and services to support vulnerable and ‘troubled’ families. This briefing paper explores some of the key issues related to PbR and some potential solutions to some of the challenges identified in making a success of new models.
