Is the FACE Child & Adolescent Risk Assessment Suite an evidence-based risk assessment tool for young people?

Yes, at Imosphere we have a long history of developing tools using evidence-based methodologies whilst using co-production to ensure the tools work well in practice for all involved.

The FACE CARAS went through a rigorous process of analysis and testing during its initial development between 2011 and 2015, including review by focus groups and extensive piloting. Two papers were produced during this process which are available here:
