FDAC BLOG SERIES

How the FDAC model works in practice, the national rollout, new developments and findings from research.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to talk in more detail about the FDAC approach and process in this series of blogs that cover a range of topics. Each blog is authored by someone in a local FDAC team or by a member of the National Unit.  The aim is to provide a wider audience with more detailed information about FDAC: how the model works in practice, the national rollout, new developments and findings from research.
