Working as a partnership is fundamental to the success of ADR UK

ADR UK is made up of four national partnerships – ADR England, ADR Northern Ireland, ADR Scotland and ADR Wales – and the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which is a key partner in linking and curating data and ensuring data provided by UK Government bodies is accessed by researchers in a safe and secure form. This structure allows each of the UK nations to have a dedicated centre and team, focusing in on its individual policy needs whilst also enabling UK-wide research.
