Change Projects

Change Projects bring together groups of Research in Practice Partners to explore pressing challenges and priorities.

Change Projects bring together groups of Research in Practice Partners to explore pressing challenges and priorities. A development group, led by experts in the topic at hand, come together to learn from research and practice experience and formulate responses, solutions, tools and materials to support change in policy and practice.

Change Projects run for 18-24 months from inception to the launch of final resources.

If you are a Partner of Research and Practice and you would like to get involved in a Change Project, please contact us.

Current Change Projects

Domestic abuse and child protection

We are working with Professor Kate Morris, Sheffield University, and Professor Brigid Featherstone, Huddersfield University, as research leads on this new Change Project, focused on the interface between domestic abuse and child protection.

Legal literacy

The Legal literacy: Change Project has explored the barriers and enablers to legal literacy in order to create resources to support this area of practice. The project is resulting in resources that support legal literacy across organisations. The resources will outline what legal literacy is and why it is important. They also set out the responsibilities leaders, supervisors and practitioners have in developing legal literacy. The resources are in their final stage of development and will be available on the website soon, including:

  • A legal literacy supervision work plan designed to support supervisors to bring legal literacy into supervision through providing a set of activities for supervisors and supervisees.
  • A creating a legally literate organisation plan designed to support senior leaders to create a legally literate environment that supports the development of legally literate practice across organisations.
