This event, held in partnership with the Centre for Homelessness Impact,  brought together providers and users of Standards of Evidence from a range of charitable and government organisations.

Our aim was to learn from your experiences and ask:

  • What have been the benefits of using Standards of Evidence for your organisation?
  • Are there any barriers or downsides to using Standards of Evidence?
  • What can we learn from the use of Standards of Evidence in different areas of social policy, or internationally?
  • Could the 18+ different Standards that exist be brought together more coherently to help users navigate them and identify the most suitable framework for their needs? Is one single set of Standards a possibility?

This event built on the Alliance for Useful Evidence report ‘Mapping the Standards of Evidence Used in UK social policy’ and helped to inform our ongoing work with providers of Standards, with the aim of improving the field for all.  As well as contributing views and experiences we heard perspectives from a number of organisations whose frameworks are included in the report.
