Thanks to funding received from the Garfield Weston Foundation, over the past year we have conducted a range of consultations, surveys and focus groups. Through this work we have come to recognise not only that we have a long way to go to reach all of the people who could make use of our information services, but that the information we currently provide can be difficult for many people to access and digest.


We will further develop our website to increase its user-friendliness and accessibility, and develop a range of new practically focused products and services including: * a series of ‘Research Reviews’ aimed at non-scientific audiences on topics such as sleep, self-injury and anxiety * a book on interventions written in plain English * a series of publications for people with learning difficulties * an interventions App for mobile phones * regular online Q&As * films, blogs and podcasts
