We also conduct programme evaluation, using quantitative and qualitative techniques among stakeholders and beneficiaries. We often combine multiple methods within a project and will tailor our approach as needed to deliver breadth and depth to our findings and recommendations. Research lies at the heart of all our services, and primary research underpins all our work, particularly evaluation and impact assessments.

To ensure rigorous impact analysis, we compile, analyse and combine landscape assessments, case studies, competitor analyses, partners’ insights, social and economic data and evaluation assessments to help organisations understand the opportunities for growth, increase in reach or develop their strategy.

In the last year alone, we have conducted programme evaluation for Burberry Inspire, Age at Work, Key4Life, The Goldsmiths Company, Panathlon and No Going Back.
