About nfpSynergy

3 nfp staff members discussing research

nfpSynergy is a research consultancy that delivers the research, the insights and the expertise to help non-profits understand their audiences and make informed strategic decisions.

Our tracking surveys are called Monitors. They allow charities to discover the opinions of vital groups like the UK and Irish public, MPs, journalists and young people. We also survey politicians in the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh and Northern Irish Assemblies. We are the market leaders in providing syndicated tracking research, enabling charities to access research that is more frequent, more detailed and more cost-effective, along with years of valuable trend data.

Fundraising, communications, branding and policy teams in charities all across the sector gain crucial insights and information from our research. They use this to look at their progress and performance, see where they can improve and decide which direction they could take next.  We also provide bespoke tracking research for charities wanting to explore a piece of work in more depth.

Every year more than 30,000 people share with us their thoughts and opinions on the topical issues in the non-profit sector. We are proud that 3 in 4 out of Top 50 fundraising brands in the UK have bought our products and services. 

We can provide tailored research solutions to help organisations meet their brand, fundraising, communications and policy challenges.

Our research expertise extends across the full range of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, including secondary data analysis, focus groups, interviews and both online and telephone surveys. We can help organisations with any research challenge - whether it's investigating a particular area of interest or a complex, multi-methodology programme of research.

We have an international team with agency, client side and commercial experience to provide research tailored to your needs. Our staff are committed to supporting the non-profit sector through high quality, actionable research. As well as an outstanding academic record in the research field, our team members have held positions at large charities, growing not-for-profits and high profile organisations such as the United Nations and the European Union. 

Our work also supports the wider sector and we publish free reports on topics of interest to the entire non-profit sector. We are passionate about the charity sector and our staff volunteer regularly. We have a huge range of volunteering experience, from here in the UK to as far afield as Ecuador, Tanzania and Cambodia. We are proud to be a London Living Wage employer.
