Social Research

We work with you to design, deliver and interpret innovative, ethical research to make sense of complex issues and understand the views of a diverse range of individuals. We use techniques ranging from desk research, interviews and focus groups through to ethnographic studies and creative deliberative events. We work to quickly scope what’s already known so we can focus on discovering the new and interesting. We delve into the motivations, attitudes, beliefs and practical considerations that drive behavior to understand the decisions people make.

More than that, we help clients to identify the implications of our findings and we develop recommendations that have buy-in from the right people to make them happen. Working with filmmakers, animators and designers we can also help you to communicate your research findings in a clear and compelling way. 

Our research work spans areas including:

  • Health and social care
  • Children’s services
  • Aging
  • Cohesion and equalities
  • Community capacity building and volunteering
  • New technologies
  • The environment
