Research

Frontline works to transform the lives of the most vulnerable in society.

We commission and produce practice-focussed research that draws insights from our programmes for the benefit of the social work system. Academics working for Frontline are also engaged in teaching and research at the forefront of social work practice. They have a wide range of expertise which includes reflexive practice, emotional resilience and motivational interviewing through to systemic practice, developmental trauma, and leadership in social work.

On this page you will also find independent research and evaluations which have been used to evidence our impact and support the development of our programmes.
