Link Officer toolkit

To support new and existing Research in Practice Link Officers to embed evidence-informed practice within their organisations, we have brought together a range of multi-media resources and guidance.


Joining the Research in Practice Partner network provides access to an extensive range of resources but embedding their use throughout an organisation requires commitment from people in key roles. We think of these as Link Officers, Strategic Champions and Evidence Champions.

This toolkit aims to support them to achieve this, enabling them to use evidence from research, practice and lived experience to improve outcomes for children, young people, families, adults and carers. Most important are Link Officers who are the lynchpins of our network, taking a lead in promoting the use of evidence-informed practice within Partner organisations. 

Within each section you will find a range of multi-media resources, videos and promotional materials alongside links to useful tools and resources to support you to embed evidence-informed practice in your organisation.

Please note, you will need to login to your Research in Practice account to access the toolkit.
