The translation of research into practice in social care is long on theory and short on practical examples. We describe a pilot project, which identified an important practice issue--the promotion of positive attachment in early infancy--explored the evidence base, summarised the findings, and devised an implementation process. The site of the project was a Barnardo's service in Belfast, which provides assistance to young women with infant children in a residential setting, where there are serious concerns about the capacity of the women to provide unassisted care. The paper is illustrated with extracts from the documentation that drove the process.
