Research in Practice for Adults supports a large network of Partners, including local authorities and national organisations, to actively promote sector-led improvements through the development of evidence-informed practice and policy.

The knowledge, expertise and experience held by those working with the adult services sector is vast. There are many excellent examples of practice – with individuals and organisations working creatively to improve the outcomes for people requiring support services. Sharing this knowledge, and also what is not working well, is critical to true sector-led improvements.

Our services, resources and events are guided by our Partners which results in high quality support that speaks directly to the needs of the sector.
