Assessing research impact: A case study of participatory research – this new briefing by Sarah Morton and Jennie Fleming looks at how participatory research with social workers contributed to the de-institutionalisation of care provision for children in the Ukraine. The case study shows how the impact of research can be analysed and documented, despite  methodological and practical challenges. In this example, despite language differences and a significant time lapse between action and assessment, it was possible to make clear links between the activity of researchers and the outcome of having fewer children living in institutional settings in the Ukraine.
