About this blog
What Works is about bringing better evidence and experimental techniques to bear on public policy.
The Cabinet Office What Works Team coordinates the What Works Network and the Cross Government Trial Advice Panel, and we work within government to improve policy through evidence use and experimentation.
In this blog, we bring together examples of best practice and resources for civil servants who want to find out what works and put robust evidence to good use.
