Policy and research briefings

Members of our Information Service benefit from our specially written briefings on key policy and practice issues.

Our Ideas in Practice series looks at case studies and examples of good practice, while our In Focus series provides introductions to hot topics and summarises available evidence.

We can also produce briefings or reading lists to support events or conferences - contact us for details.
