Social research at Traverse is focussed on discovering practical, tangible insight and learning. In particular, we specialise in Qualitative Research, ie research which focusses on human elements that go beyond numeric analysis.
We design, deliver and interpret bespoke, mixed-method, innovative research to make sense of complex issues.
We use techniques ranging from rapid evidence reviews, calls for evidence, surveys, interviews and focus groups to ethnographic methods, peer led research and co-production workshops. We work to quickly scope what’s already known so we can focus on discovering the new and interesting.
Our work is underpinned by a commitment to ensuring that taking part in research is an empowering experience. The use of analytical frameworks (themselves often co-produced) help us test hypotheses, explore research questions and identify the tangible insights and learning which take our research outputs from descriptive, to applied.
We work from the outset to develop recommendations that have buy-in from the right people to make them happen. Working with filmmakers, animators and designers we help you to communicate your research findings in a clear and compelling way.
