This tool can help decision making at local levels. It supports the estimation of programme costs and the identification of programme benefits across different payback timescales. This tool is a beta version and we welcome your feedback.

The tool reports ROI metrics that are already available for children and young people. Where data are missing the outputs are reported as a cost per effect and/or a wider societal benefit.
