  •  Data framework – next, the paper outlines the data framework, which aims to provide organisations and partnerships with a tool that can be used to improve the use of data and evidence;
  •  Case study – finally, the paper presents the key messages from work that CLES Consulting has carried out with teenage pregnancy partnerships across the country, thus providing an explanation of the practical use of the framework and presenting the main findings from this work.
