DEEP works to create and enriched environment of care and learning. DEEP works to facilitate the creation of inclusive and safe spaces, within which participants feel valued and able to share their thoughts and feelings in relation to learning and development.
DEEP focuses on talking and thinking together about diverse types of evidence within the context of practice – involving everyone concerned. This evidence is gathered and presented in meaningful formats.
DEEP values and uses diverse types of ‘evidence’, including research knowledge, practitioner knowledge, lived experience of people support by social care services and organisational knowledge
DEEP recognises and addresses structural obstacles. It identifies systemic issues that undermine or obstruct the use of evidence in practice.
