Archways was established in order to promote the use of evidence-based programmes for children and families. As such we have a strong commitment to evaluation and research. Since Archways began we have been involved in a number of major research studies, aimed at building the Irish evidence-base for the programmes we develop, promote and use.
We have conducted small-scale research in-house and have commissioned a number of RCT evaluations working with both Maynooth University (Incredible Years Ireland Study, ENRICH) and UCD, Dublin (Putting Families First: An Evaluation of the Functional Family Therapy Programme).
Archways also offers research support to other organisations, including workshops on common measurement tools, support with research design and conducting research projects.
