Supporting public systems and communities to increase investments in evidence-based prevention and early intervention

About

Project Lead: Louise Morpeth, PhD

Motivated by the poor take-up of evidence-based approaches by public agencies and by the struggles of non-profits to scale such approaches in high need communities, The Annie E Casey Foundation convened a group of leading prevention scientists to design, implement and evaluate a method for increasing investment in evidence-based prevention and early intervention activities.

The result is Evidence2Success - a suite of tools comprising: a school-based survey of risk and protective factors in children's lives, a method for mapping current investments in services for children & families, Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development (a database of tested and effective programmes) and a data dashboard for monitoring programme implementation.

Our role

Working alongside colleagues at the Foundation, the Social Development Research Group and Mainspring Consulting, we contribute to the ongoing development of Evidence2Success and support implementation of the model in the US (Providence, Rhode Island). 

With funding from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Perth & Kinross Council, we also adapted and implemented the approach in Scotland (Perth & Kinross). We are developing a prototype data dashboard to support programme implementation in the US and UK.
