UPDATE: Restrictions on emails have been lifted

We now have sufficient confidence our systems and servers have not been affected by the recent cyber attack on our ICT provider, Sopra Steria, that we have lifted the block on external emails.

As you would expect, there are a large number of emails that have been quarantine but work is well under way to release them and should be completed by the end of tomorrow (Friday).

Thank you for your patience and support whilst we have worked to safely resolve the situation.    


If you need us urgently, please call us.

Research projects

Research, impact and evaluation

Determining the impact and effect of work across education, health and social care sectors has become increasingly important in recent years. 

Our recently established Research and Evaluation Group is able to work with you to plan, implement and deliver on small to medium scale research projects.

You might consider this when you want to:

  • Gather the views of important stakeholders before deciding on a course of action
  • Understand what previous research and literature says about a particular topic (a literature review)
  • Monitor the ongoing effects of a current intervention
  • Find out about the effect of a particular intervention 
  • Understand the perceived impact of interventions by children, parents or professionals
