Our work

A fundamental principle of our work is that we are drawing evidence equally from research and practice to develop a prevention system. These two sources of innovation – learning from research and learning from doing – will inform and enhance each other to create effective interventions and policies.

Our innovative collaborative approach aims to bridge the divide between policy makers and practitioners and researchers. Researchers are working with policy makers and practitioners to develop research questions, conduct research, and analyse, interpret and disseminate the findings. As such, it is the model of interaction that is being tested as much as the specific projects.
