The UK government has launched the What Works Network – six independent institutions responsible for gathering, assessing, and sharing the most robust evidence to inform policy and service delivery in health, education, crime, promoting active and independent ageing, effective early intervention, and fostering local economic growth. The network includes a number of existing organisations:
- The What Works Centre for Improving Education Outcomes for School-aged Children will be the Education Endowment Foundation.
- The What Works Centre for Early Intervention will be provided by the recently formed Early Intervention Foundation.
- The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) will provide the What Works Centre for health.
Other centres will be set up in the coming months.
