The purpose of the economic evaluation is to provide evidence of the cost-effectiveness of both the overall and individually funded aspects of KTS and to inform ongoing budgetary directions for child protection and wellbeing policy in NSW.

A cost-effectiveness framework has been applied to undertake the economic evaluation, whereby the improvement in an invaluable outcome, such as child safety, is reported against the cost of achieving that outcome and in this instance the strength of that relationship tested in a multivariate context.
