The Campbell Collaboration UK and Ireland is a national centre of the Campbell Collaboration.  It's role is to promote the work of the Campbell Collaboration across the UK and Ireland. The primary focus of this work is to encourage the greater production and use of Campbell Reviews nationally.

Campbell UK & Ireland will achieve this through: supporting training and research capacity building in relation to systematic review methods; seeking funding to support research teams in the UK and Ireland undertake Campbell Reviews; and making strategic connections with research organisations, universities, NGOs and local and national governments across the islands to encourage the greater use of Campbell Reviews and promote a stronger focus on evidence-informed decision making.

The Alliance for Useful Evidence is a network, hosted by Nesta, that champions the smarter use of evidence in social policy and practice. They do this through advocacy, organising events, sharing ideas, and delivering training and support.
