Associate Professor Lucy Griffiths, co-lead of the Social Justice and Health and Well-being research themes at ADR Wales, has received an ADR England Research Community Catalyst Award. Recipients of these awards will develop self-sustaining communities of researchers and wider stakeholders to advance administrative data research for public good. This will include driving up the use of ADR England flagship datasets.

The new project, “ADR England Research Community Catalyst for Children at Risk of Poor Outcomes,” will be co-led by Dr Griffiths and Prof Karen Broadhurst, of Lancaster University. Their project aims to build a community of data users. This community will provide national strategic leadership for administrative data and research, focusing on children and young people supported by early intervention services or children’s social care.

The project is co-funded by ADR UK with Foundations: The National What Works Centre for Children and Families. Co-investigators include Dr Jenny Woodman and Professor Katie Harron (University College London), Professor Lisa Holmes (University of Sussex) and Dr Dougal Hargreaves (Imperial College London).
