How will you get your findings into the hands of policy makers?
A plan for communicating research is needed and should begin at the start of a project, rather than waiting until the end to share findings.

Have you developed a plan for engaging with policy makers throughout the research process? What methods will you use?

Have you chosen the correct messenger?
Who is best placed to share your findings? Is there a specific organisation whose opinion is valued or has the ear of the government? Sometimes it is more effective to find a supportive policy maker in government who can also promote evidence from within. Can you work with them to share the findings of analysis? Also, remember that policy products represent a type of participation and power. It is important that the role of the person or organisation producing the brief is accurately represented.
