This just in.

The Nuffield Foundation is hoping to commission a project which will seek to find ways of sharing the best available research on child welfare with professionals inside the family justice system, as well as ensuring any research used is rigorously tested before being implemented.

The project also hopes to find solutions “which might improve the vetting, synthesis, dissemination, and translation into practice of research evidence and data relevant to family justice issues.”

To this end,The Foundation will be hosting a conference in London on Wednesday 14th October from 4.30pm-7.30pm to invite stakeholders to share their views on what could be done to improve these areas.
