Evaluation of the North Yorkshire Partners in Practice Programme (including No Wrong Door Programme)

NatCen Social Research has been commissioned by the Department for Education  (DfE) to carry out an evaluation of the Partners in Practice programme (PiP) taking place in North Yorkshire County Council with a key focus on two recent developments of the No Wrong Door programme:  Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and Leaving Care extensions. 

As part of the research, NatCen would like to carry out telephone interviews with strategic staff who have detailed knowledge  of the design and/or overall implementation of the programme and with practitioners involved in the delivery of SEMH or Leaving Care extensions.
