CRFR are delighted to be part of the new What Works Scotland centre announced last week by the ESRC.

Over the next three years WWS will work closely with Community Planning Partnerships and other stakeholders to find, create, evaluate and communicate the evidence of what works in delivering the Scottish model of public service delivery.

It aims to:

  • support service performance and improvement underpinned by data, evidence and the application of improvement methodologies
  • build on the strengths and assets of individuals and communities, rather than only focusing on perceived deficits
  • develop services which are shaped and co-produced by both service providers and the citizens and communities who receive and engage with those services.

 CRFR’s Sarah Morton will lead on the evidence to action strand of WWS, and Karen Seditas will take forward CRFR’s Evidence Bank Project  into the new Centre.

 “This is an exciting opportunity to build on the work we have already established on linking research with service development and delivery” said Sarah Morton “we hope that many of CRFR’s existing partners who are interested in public service reform will link with and benefit from the new What Works Scotland initiative”
