The Best Practice Guide and Handbook for Prospect Research is an exciting new project that aims to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date and relevant guide to the diverse range of skills and knowledge required for successful, professional and ethical prospect research in the UK - in an accessible user-friendly format, at an affordable price.

I'm in involved with the handbook as it should be the single greatest single resource for Prospect Research in the UK.
