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 across the world.
