Practice in Need of Evidence
Excellent practice is happening all over the country but, in most instances, without a robust evidence-base. We want to find promising practice and support social care organisations to be more evidence-minded and evaluate their own practice to a high standard through our Practice In Need of Evidence (PINE) programme. Ultimately we hope to find practice that could be successfully shared and scaled more widely.
Our current PINE projects:
|Organisation||Project||TIDieR||Logic Model||Evaluation Plan|
|Brighton and Hove City Council||Early Parenting Assessment Programme (EPAP)|
Evaluation to understand the value of EPAP; how it influences the assessment process, decision-making and, ultimately, outcomes for parents and their babies
|TIDieR||Logic Model||Evaluation Plan|
|Bath and North East Somerset Council||Adolescent Risk Team (ART)||TIDieR||Evaluation Plan|
|London Borough of Southwark||Fathers’ Parenting Group|
Evidence for the effectiveness of the Southwark Fathers Group against a range of outcomes, and to understand whether there are areas for improvement with regards to the delivery and process around the intervention.
|Parents and Children Together (PACT)||Adoption Hub|
Embedding an online support tool into regular practice with adopters during the assessment process , when they are approved and once children are in placement.
|Centre for Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse and Greater Manchester Complex Safeguarding||Working to Increase Safety in Exploitation (WISE)|
Evaluating an approach that would enable exploitation services, or wider services responding to young people’s needs, to focus on “creating safety” and improving well being rather than seeking to reduce risk
