Useful Resources

Below is an A-Z of websites, papers, toolkits and other useful stuff to help you on your research journey. I’m always updating this resource so if there’s something you think I need to include here please let me know. This is in no way a complete nor systematic list of all resources for the social or health services or development. Instead, consider it a virtual rummage bin of things I find on my travels that I hope are useful to you as well. More how-to guidance on getting your research done can be found in the Research Companion book
