Research Hub

The SCiP Alliance Research Hub leads our research strategy and activity. It's purpose is to:

Lead the prioritisation, design and delivery of research to improve knowledge, understanding, tracking and evidence that will support the development of effective policy and practice

Dr Judith McCullouch is the Chair of the SCiP Alliance research group and lead the research that forms the foundation and starting point for our work. 

The hub brings together staff from across the UK and beyond to share research and data, identify key research questions and collaborate on answering them.

Current priorities

This year we have been working on establishing the group and have also been continuing our analysis of Ministry of Defence data and are developing a research pilot designed to identify effective, scalable and sustainable approaches to improving progression.

Further details of the current research phase

The research group has published its research plan outlining a graduated approach to creating a robust and credible knowledge base and ensuring that policy and practice recommendations are underpinned with evidence by:

  • Understanding the experiences and outcomes of Service children fully and the reasons for them;
  • Identifying the most effective approaches to improve outcomes;
  • Translating this knowledge into sustainable activity everywhere where it is needed.
