These four papers are focused around the area of supporting multi-agency communication in working with domestic abuse in families with children. They form part of a wider collection of papers related to the Using evidence for change project.
This project was conducted to support implementation of the Improving Use of Evidence action area within the national Shared Vision and Strategy for Social Services in Scotland 2015-2020. It aimed to recognise the value that social services place on evidence from experience and context as well as from research. The intention was to define a methodology that would bring together these different types of evidence and support social work and social care staff to convert that evidence into decisions and actions.
