Content

High quality evidence - from research and evaluation studies, to expert knowledge, to stakeholder consultations - can be used to help your charity in many ways, from growing your organisation, to unlocking funding, to political campaigning. But how do you make use of evidence that's already out there? How do you interpret the findings and apply those to decisions you make about your work? How do you produce your own evidence in a way that's useful without breaking the bank or needing an in-house research team? In this interactive webinar Emma Taylor-Collins, Senior Research Officer at Alliance for Useful Evidence and Wales Centre for Public Policy, will explore these questions and talk about what evidence can do for you. 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar participants will:

  • Have learnt about Alliance for Useful Evidence and Wales Centre for Public Policy and the free resources they have to offer
  • Know where to go for good evidence
  • Have heard from others in the sector about the way they use evidence, and the challenges they face
