Changing Lives, Changing Systems: Helping families stay together

27 January 2022

This report shares learnings from practical experience of impact at scale. It focuses on Positive Family Partnerships (PFP), a programme supporting families in London at risk of breakdown. PFP was built around a ‘platform’ model that enabled new areas to come on board quickly.

We consider what lasting change for people and society looks like in practice, using PFP as an example of this kind of ‘platform’ approach to impact at scale. Our hope is that by sharing the general lessons they can be applied by other charities, funders and agencies involved in social change on a range of issues.

This is part of a series of co-produced reports at Social Finance called Changing Lives, Changing Systems. These reports capture and disseminate cross-cutting learnings from different case studies showing impact at scale in practice.
