Welcome to OOC. We put outcomes at the centre of children’s social care - guiding our sector to better understand what works, when, where and for which children.
OOC is a not-for-profit organisation, founded to improve outcomes in children’s social care.
We do this by developing evidence-based solutions for local authorities and care providers, sharing knowledge and expertise, and promoting a child-centred, ethical and scientifically robust approach across policy, practice and service development.
OOC brings together specialist knowledge and expertise to ensure the best responses to the needs of children in social care. We host sector specialists from academia to practice including consultant social workers, clinical psychologists and system experts. We make sense of the science, the data and many complex interacting factors in children’s social care - in order to support local authorities and care providers in discovering how better outcomes are possible.
