360° support

Our organisational Partnership model is designed to ensure we support evidence-informed practice across your organisation. We focus on helping you to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and families, to develop the skills and knowledge of your workforce and to embed a culture of evidence-informed practice.

Our support is accessible, engaging and tailored to the requirements of staff at all organisational levels - from building frontline expertise to supporting strategic decision-making.

We work closely with our Partnership network to consult on topics, enabling us to deliver support that is relevant, timely and truly sector-led.
