Children's Policy Research Unit (CPRU)
CPRU was established by the Department of Health in 2011 to provide evidence for policy and practice that will improve the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families. It is a consortium led from ICH in partnership with the National Children's Bureau (NCB), the Anna Freud Centre and the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE).
CPRU has five research themes, four of which are being led by researchers in this Programme (the healthy child, healthcare provision, adolescent health and long term conditions).
