The Alliance for Useful Evidence champions the use of evidence in social policy and practice.
We are an open–access network of more than 2500 individuals from across government, universities, charities, business and local authorities in the UK and internationally.

Alliance appointed to help scope Nuffield family justice observatory
We are delighted to announce that following a competitive tender the Alliance has been appointed to carry out a scoping study for a new family justice observatory. In a partnership lead by Professor Karen Broadhurst at Lancaster University, and including Research in Practice and the Centre for Child and Family Research at Loughbrough University, the study will establish the purpose, functions, and delivery options for a family justice observatory. The 18-month project will commence in June 2016 and further details are available on the Nuffield Foundation website.
