Working with Practice

Working with practice is at the heart of what we do.

  • We have engaged with 126 local authorities
  • 102 local authorities are working in partnership with us

We are committed to listening to what the sector wants and needs, and to working in partnership to find out what works.

From the start of the Centre’s development, we have engaged with our key stakeholders in a number of ways including practitioner events, visits to local authorities and consultative panels.

We have heard important messages about how evidence is currently being used and what opportunities there are to build a stronger evidence base. We have formed partnerships with many local authorities to conduct primary research in children’s social care so we can find out together how evidence can improve outcomes for children and families.

We are proud to be working with so many partners in the social care sector on a variety of projects.
