Navigating complexity and controversy in the changing world of public services.

In a world where everyone from policy makers to citizens has a different perspective every decision we make has to stand up to challenge.

Traverse helps organisations who are dealing with complex and controversial issues to understand what the communities and people affected think about their projects and proposals. We use transparent processes and evidence-based tools to engage and weigh every voice, personal and professional, whether loudly proclaimed or seldom heard. Our experts work with you to evaluate and implement your decisions, improve your plans and build capacity and support you to deliver real impact.

Our clients rely on us when the issues are thorny and good decisions matter. From health and social care integration to airport expansion, social isolation to the future of energy generation, we bring our expertise to help you listen, analyse and act decisively.
