Tools & Resources

People want to be better connected with evidence and support.

We work with researchers and practitioners to develop high-quality, evidence-based tools, and we collate partners' resources in a searchable database.

The Thriving Lives Toolkit, developed with the support of six Uni Connect partnerships, provides a suite of support for schools, including an evidence-based self-assessment tool using the 7 principles of effective support, and an introductory animation and self-directed professional development module for each principle.

Our Online Targeting Tool helps providers target and plan their support by exploring the distribution of Service children in England, based on the Department for Education's Service Pupil Premium data. It was funded by six Uni Connect partnerships and by ABF The Soldiers Charity.

Our online resource database collates videos, guidance, toolkits, templates and more from Alliance partners, and you can filter by type, education phase or country.
