Thank you for visiting us

The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), Research in Practice (RiP) and Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA) have together developed and co-led reason, the research, evaluation and analysis support network.

Since 2011 reason has supported those working in the children’s and adults’ sectors including education, health and social care to:

  • demonstrate the impact and value of your work
  • find out from others what works to improve services
  • develop skills and knowledge in evaluation and analysis
  • understand how evaluations work.

reason’s library of resources can help you build knowledge and skills in research, evaluation and analysis. Whether you’re seeking to develop and implement a strategy or framework, collect and analyse data, or embed evaluation findings, reason resources can help in a way that builds your organisation’s capacity.

Please visit the co-founding organisations’ websites to purchase resources and find out about how we could support you to evaluate the work that you do.
