As with all C4EO themes, C4EO recognises that not all useful knowledge about ‘what
works’ and why, is to be found in research reports and papers. We are therefore
keen to hear about practice that is leading to significantly improved outcomes for
children, young people and their families.
We will incorporate validated local practice examples into our full reviews on what
works, which will be shared with other decision-makers in the children’s services
field. We will also include them as a special body of evidence on this website.
To be validated, practice examples need to be supported by some evidence which shows
the outcomes and changes that have been achieved.
If you would like to submit an example of effective local practice, please:
