Policy and practice notes

LWEC policy and practice notes draw out conclusions and recommendations from research funded by LWEC members. They present key findings in non-technical language for public, private and third-sector audiences. They are plain English summaries of conclusions and recommendations from initiatives emerging from the Forum.

Each note is tailored to its target audience. Some are intended for a broad and diverse audience. Others are more tightly focused on the needs of specific group of research users, for example local government, small businesses or national policy-makers.
