What is a Change Project? • One of six strands of work for research in practice for adults • They identify an area of practice, take account of the available evidence, pilot new ways of working and evaluate the impact • They are designed to enable participants to contribute to the improvement of evidence based approaches, both in their own agency and in the broader professional community • They provide an opportunity for us to work closely and collaboratively with Partner agencies in our network
