CEI finds, generates and supports implementation of the best evidence to help our partners make an impact.

There is a well-documented gap between research and practice: a lag of approximately 17 years between what we “know” and what we “do”. In every social service sector, the "know-do" gap is holding back innovations from improving lives.

CEI's work is about reducing this gap to change lives for the better.

We find, synthesise and make sense of evidence. We proactively build the evidence base and evaluate interventions. We support policymakers, donors, researchers and practitioners who want to disseminate and implement evidence to make change in communities. Our work also focuses on building the enabling ecosystems and contexts that support evidence use: the skills and cultures that drive continuous improvement and learning.
