Our research programme will underpin the work of the Council and support the enhancement and promotion of the controlled sector.

As a starting point we are conducting an analysis of existing data to gain a deeper understanding of the sector, its strengths and weaknesses. 

Baseline data will help us:

  • Recognise key issues and needs
  • Identify areas for advocacy
  • Identify examples of good practice and success.

One of the key areas we will explore is underachievement in the controlled sector, we hope to work in partnership with other organisations to investigate this issue and will publish our findings.
