This report draws on a systematic review of published evidence to provide lessons on empowerment for policy makers and practitioners. It aims to enable the development of workable activities for empowerment underpinned by a sound evidence base. It focuses on six key mechanisms that facilitate empowerment: asset transfer; citizen governance; electronic participation; participatory budgeting; petitions; redress.
This website is to help students and practitioners of social care and social work make greater and more effective use of research in their studies and in practice.
This report sets out a framework for the assessment of children in need and their families involving cooperation from all agencies who have a role in protecting children in society.
The government's expectations of how this framework will be used are also laid out. The guidance has been produced primarily for the use of professionals and other staff who will be involved in undertaking assessments of children in need and their families under the Children Act 1989.
This workbook sets out to show how social care governance is made up of many of social care’s core activities, familiar to practitioners. It puts social care governance into direct practice by taking a team audit approach. This helps teams reflect on and evaluate their practice, using the knowledge SCIE has gathered, to make improvements. The audit framework helps the wider organisation to learn from practice.
This document sets out the rationale for integrated care and its wider context. It provides definitions and concepts of integrated care and its key elements: accessibility, assessment, planning and delivery of care, information sharing, monitoring and evaluation. Evidence is also provided from research literature, focus groups and consultation on the key issues that influence effective practice in integrated care. Key principles and elements of effective practice drawn from the evidence are also explained.
In 2001 the Scottish Executive Education Department (SEED) commissioned Professor Colwyn Trevarthen and a team of colleagues to review the research evidence on the development of children from birth to three years old, and to consider the implications of that evidence for the provision of care outwith the home.
This guide aims to assist local authorities and their partner agencies in the development of inclusive, evidence-based and cost-effective homelessness services for their local ethnic minority populations.

The stigma face by people with a mental illness can create social isolation, reduce opportunities and make recovery more difficult. This report looks at the evidence for effective anti-stigma marketing campaigns, in particular Rethink's experience in Norwich and Northern Ireland. The Norwich and Northern Ireland campaigns are described. There is then some discussion of their impact based on the results of telephone surveys carried out before and after the campaigns. Lessons from Norwich and Northern Ireland are discussed.
First in a series of guides on developing and implementing Integrated Care Pathways (ICPs). While ICPs have been developed within health settings, there is a growing interest in their development across a range of treatment and social care settings to ensure that a co-ordinated, quality service is provided over the full continuum of care. Care pathways are designed to minimise delays, make best use of resources, and maximise quality of care.
This guide examines when and how integrated care pathways can be used to provide better care for people with drug problems.
