Research & Evidence: 'How to' factsheets

Evidence Fact Sheets

We have compiled a set of fact sheets which aim to provide information, advice and support for anyone interested in research or evaluation.

They offer a practical resource to enable users to understand, design, generate and utilise research and evaluation evidence within their role.

The fact sheets will particularly support the effective commissioning of services but will also be of interest to anyone who would like to learn more about developing a research project or service evaluation.
