Guide from the Alliance for Useful Evidence

The Alliance has created this guide to point you on the right path to finding what evidence might help you. It should help to build your confidence in compiling, assimilating, distilling, interpreting and presenting a strong evidence base using existing research, and to also think about how you might go on to evaluate your own work.

This guide was written by Jonathan Breckon, edited by Isobel Roberts and produced by Nesta’s Innovation Skills team.

The Evaluation and Evidence toolkits go hand in hand. Using and generating evidence to inform decision making is vital to improving services and people’s lives.
