How We Change Policy

Our aim is to make a real-world difference to policy-making by conducting research using innovative methods, co-produced with policy-makers, services and service users. We make a range of resources available to support policy-makers and practitioners. These help people to establish what works, disseminate findings on specific policies and share our insights on innovative methods.
