The Practice Group

The practice group brings together national leads and the chairs of our practice hubs to support practitioners and professionals to champion the progression of children and young people from Service families and ensure the best outcomes.   We meet several times a year to hear from members, develop mechanisms to translate the Alliance's research into evidence informed practice and collaborate on projects to solve practitioner challenges.

The current chair is Dr Sally Griffin, Widening Participation Manager at Bath Spa University.
