In February 2012, the National Children’s Bureau (NCB NI) and the Centre for Excellence and Outcomes (C4EO) were commissioned by the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister (OFMdFM) to assist it in establishing an approach for bringing together Government departments so that each department has an opportunity to understand its role in terms of reducing child poverty.

A key aim of this commissioned work is, therefore, to define a Child Poverty Outcomes Framework (hereafter referred to as the ‘Outcomes Framework’). Underpinning the programme of activities is a commitment to the key principles of Outcomes Based Approach (OBA) which has a track record of delivering improvements in outcomes internationally.
