Using evidence

What Works logo

Designing policies, services, programmes or interventions that help improve children and young people’s lives is not easy. Evidence of what has worked in the past, in particular places and with particular resources can help us in our decisions.

This website aims to provide easy access to key pieces of established and emerging evidence of what has worked in prevention and early intervention programmes, models and approaches across children and young people’s services.

EIF Guidebook

The EIF Guidebook provides information about early intervention programmes that have been evaluated and shown to improve outcomes for children and young people.

Evidence into Policy Programme

DCYA’s Evidence into Policy Programme (EiPP) supports the use of evidence in the Department’s policy making process.
