In this chapter the Director of Policy and Research at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation,[ one of the major independent research and policy NGOs in the United Kingdom with a commitment to influence, inform and inspire social change], provides a tellingly honest and highly illuminating account of how the JRF conceives, develops and funds its research. This account of the way in which she and her colleagues seek to address the multiple challenges of working to develop research that will inform policy and practice provides a valuable benchmark for a comparative analysis of their own and other contexts. The chapter offers a counterpoint to the other chapters in revealing areas where the interests of the researcher and the funder may not comfortably come into alignment.
