The ESRC, the Big Lottery Fund and Nesta have come together in partnership to create The Alliance for Useful Evidence.

By championing the need for useful evidence, the Alliance provides a focal point for improving and extending the use of social research and evidence in the UK. In doing so, we work with other organisations in this field to encourage debate, discussion, collaboration and innovation. Our aim is to become the hub for evidence initiatives in the UK, providing a forum for members to share good practice and avoid the duplication of work.

The Alliance is an open access network of individuals from across government, universities, charities, business and local authorities in the UK and internationally. If you are interested in promoting useful evidence in decision making across social policy, whilst gaining access to publications and events, and networking with other members join us at The Alliance for Useful Evidence.

Membership is free and open to everyone, from interested individuals to charities, academics, local authorities, practitioners, think tanks, government and commercial businesses.
