Impact and evidence Using evaluation, research and evidence to protect children and prevent abuse
Learning about what works in the fight against abuse and neglect is central to what we do.
We're committed to carrying out research and evaluation to make sure that approaches we're taking are the right ones.

Our evaluation toolkit
Tools for measuring outcomes
We want to share our experiences of using standardised measures in our evaluations so that we can help others who are looking at evaluation methods.
Ethics and guidance
To ensure that all our research is ethical we have detailed guidance and all our studies have to be approved by our Research Ethics Committee.
