How best to serve young people with evidence?

The case for collaboration between What Works Centres
Collaborative research Evidence-based policy Policy analysis Research institutes Youth services Youth United Kingdom

Britain’s What Works Network – a group of research centres and charities with a shared mission to commission, conduct, collate and translate causal evidence across a wide variety of policy domains – is a source of great pride for the UK government.

This paper makes the case for evidence-based policy, before recapping the history of the What Works movement and its particular structure in the United Kingdom. The remainder of the paper considers the advantages and disadvantages of greater integration and collaboration between centres, and concludes with some recommendations for how this might be achieved.
