Nine new organisations join our Panel of Evaluators

31 March 2021

What Works for Children’s Social Care is delighted to announce that nine new organisations have joined our Panel of Evaluators, bringing the total number to 26.

Our evaluators design and run independent evaluations of promising projects supported or funded by WWCSC, working closely with us and our delivery partners to provide high-quality evidence on the impact of interventions. This expansion of the panel will support our increasing number of research projects and help us grow the evidence base in children’s social care. Each of these organisations possess a wealth of experience and expertise in the evaluation of children’s social care programmes and interventions.

The new additions to our Panel of Evaluators are: 

  • IFF Research
  • Oxford Brookes University: Institute of Public Care
  • RAND Europe
  • Cedar
  • Cordis Bright
  • Bryson Purdon Social Research LLP
  • Ecorys
  • Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC)
  • National Foundation for Education Research

Louise Jones, Director of Programmes, What Works for Children’s Social Care, said:
“We’re pleased to be working with these new organisations. Each brings a breadth of diverse experience and expertise to our Panel of Evaluators and we look forward to working with as many as possible to better understand what works to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families”.
