The Alliance for Useful Evidence champions the use of evidence in social policy and practice.
The Alliance is a UK-wide network that promotes the use of high quality evidence to inform decisions on strategy, policy and practice. We do this through advocacy, publishing research, sharing ideas and advice, and holding events and training. If you are interested in the use of evidence in policy making, then you should join our free network of over 3000 individuals and organisations across the world.

Call for Evidence
With Lancaster University, we have launched a nationwide call for evidence to better understand the use of research evidence in the family justice system. This research is funded by The Nuffield Foundation, to inform the development of a proposed family justice observatory.
Do you know someone who could be an evidence champion?
We are seeking to recruit a small number of UK based 'champions', from all sectors, to help spread the message about the effective use of evidence in their work place. We're looking for people who can make the case to their colleagues for the need for evidence and to foster leadership around the production and use of evidence. Champions will have the opportunity to participate in our Evidence Masterclass and to benefit from other training and networking events. If you know someone who'd fit the bill, use this form to let us know.
