- CRFR also works in collaboration with the School of Applied Social Sciences at the University of Durham.
We also generate and build on partnerships with public and voluntary organisations. We work with our partners to develop research ideas and projects, organise seminars and workshops, disseminate research findings and respond to policy and service needs.
Some of our most innovative work has been achieved through collaborative working. Recent partnerships include:
- Inspiring Scotland and Evaluation Support Scotland to write a CRFR Conference Briefing, Claiming an evidence-base for services and interventions
- Capability Scotland and Parenting Across Scotland on the About Families project
- Scottish Government, ScotCen, and the Medical Research Council on Growing Up in Scotland
- LGBT Youth Scotland on the LGBT domestic abuse project
- IRISS on the Practitioner Research & Older People project
