So how did we do?

We monitor our referrals post intervention after 3 months on the Home Visit, after 3 then 6 months on the Safe programme and after 3, 6 and 12 months for the Firesafe programme.

We measure our effectiveness simply on whether the child or young person has continued or not with fire setting behaviour. With the Firesafe programme we also measure attitudinal change using a validated assessment tool.

Of the 33 home visits only 1 continued to experiment with lighters and fire (a 97% success rate).


Of the 29 Safe referrals:

3 non-complete (2 moved out of area, 1 not cooperating)


Of the 5 Firesafe referrals:

5 completed and are currently being monitored.
