We use systematic and rigorous processes to examine the existing evidence base to identify a solid foundation on which to inform your actions or answer your key questions. We are skilled at navigating sources including scientific papers and policy reports to connect you with the evidence most useful to you.
Design surveys and interview guides
Our surveys use validated measures and tailored questions to capture robust and insightful evidence from your respondents. We practise collaborative working to ensure that the data collection tools are relevant to your needs. Our strength is building strong relationships and trust with a range of different groups, including vulnerable and hard to reach communities.
We are experienced in collecting data in various forms including: questionnaires, surveys, interviews and focus groups. We are able to do this while minimising bias and ensuring a representative sample.
We use a range of qualitative and quantitative analysis tools to help generate insights and answer your research questions. We are experienced in applying both descriptive statistics and more complex modelling techniques to answer specific research questions. This could also involve analysis of pre-existing (often routinely) collected data.
Monitoring and evaluation
We bring together creative methodologies and extensive experience from previous clients to help you to evaluate your service. Our service evaluation is designed to improve your service and support your funding bids with evidence to grow your charity. We offer packages that provide you with an evaluation tool you can keep using to ensure you are making a difference.
Writing reports and delivering presentations
We write reports and deliver presentations of our work to a wide range of audiences, including academics, health-care professionals, charities, local government and policy-makers. An important aspect of our work is data visualisation to ensure the findings can be communicated clearly.
