From January 2013, the organisations will jointly run a series of events for civil servants and local government employees that will explore how policy can link with practice across the BLF’s four priority working areas: youth employment; adult special needs; vulnerable babies; and older people.

Peter Wanless, BLF’s chief executive, said in an interview with CSW that the events will offer civil servants “ready access” to people who are trying different ways of delivering public services, giving them “an insight into evidence-based experimentation in a much more effective way”.

Peter Thomas, programme director at the IfG, added that the partnership “will help further our work to improve policy making”.
