  • Children's services: pioneering new approaches 04 May 2018Open

    The What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care is seeking local authority led applications to help pioneer the development of evidence-informed practice.

    Now is your chance to become a Pioneer. We encourage all local authorities to apply – and there will be a second opportunity to become a Partner later in the year. And while the applications need to be led by local authorities, we encourage collaborative bids with other children’s care organisations.
