Priorities and relevances
C4EO recognises that not all useful knowledge about ‘what works’ and why, is to
be found in research reports and papers. We are therefore keen to hear about practice
that is leading to significantly improved outcomes for children, young people and
C4EO will incorporate validated local practice examples into its full reviews on
‘what works’, which will be shared with other decision-makers in the children’s
services field. We will also include them as a special body of evidence on this
website. To be validated, practice examples need to be supported by some evidence
which shows the outcomes and changes that have been achieved.
C4EO is seeking examples of effective practice across all eight themes, but is currently
looking for particular examples for the following themes:
C4EO continues to welcome positive examples of good practice outside these dates
– and across all eight themes - but these are the deadlines for examples to be considered
for inclusion in the Knowledge Reviews.
