Whilst Catch22 is a delivery-focused organisation, our services are research and evidence-informed. We value research as an important tool for driving forward our knowledge about what works and what does not, so that we can achieve the best outcomes for people accessing our services. In addition, we continue to be involved in a range of research projects that not only support our frontline practice, but also play key roles in shaping policy at a national level.

  • Dawes Unit
    The Catch22 Dawes Unit brings together research, policy and practice in order to understand how to reduce the harm caused by gangs and gang-related crime.
  • Care leavers research
    Catch22 has been involved with multiple research projects across different aspects of leaving care, working in partnership with young people, universities, local authorities, public bodies and international organisations.
  • London Education and Inclusion Project (LEIP)
    Catch22 collaborated with EEF, the Greater London Authority and the University of Cambridge Institute of Criminology on a long-term study of the impact of Engage in Education on exclusions
