    Evidence Based Practice Unit

    The Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) bridges the worlds of academic research and mental health practice. The unit contributes to research and develop practical tools, training and information for children, families and professionals. 

    EBPU sits within UCL and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, thus linking the worlds of academia and professional practice. The unit also works closely with CORC and together they share the vision for all children and young people's wellbeing support to be informed by real-world evidence so that every child thrives.

    The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF) has been developing and delivering pioneering mental health care for over 60 years. They are leading the way by campaigning for and creating mental health services built around the needs and experiences of children, young people and their families and not around the institutions who deliver them

    AFNCCF's vision is a world where children and families are supported effectively to build on their strengths and to achieve their goals in life. We won't rest until every child and their family has the support they need and deserve, whatever their circumstances.
