It is widely understood that evidence-informed practices and programs have a significant role to play in providing better outcomes for the people we partner with. While Life Without Barriers has for some time delivered these, it has become increasingly clear that a clear and consistent evidence-informed strategy is necessary for us to get the best out of the work that we do.

To ensure our strategy was itself evidence-informed, we went out and surveyed the research around what constitutes good evidence, some of the barriers to implementation that organisations face and how to best evaluate and monitor the work that we do. We then built on this work to develop a strategy that will help ensure that we remain at the forefront of evidence-informed practice, and gets the best outcomes from its evidence-based programs.
