Our services


We design qualitative and participatory research projects that help organisations and communities to understand and find solutions to pressing social issues.


We carry out evaluations of existing social programmes, policies and activities to understand their value and measure the impact.


We provide training in participatory action research so that organisations can engage effectively with the people who use their services.
