Bespoke Research

Our specialist bespoke research team have skills and experience in most research methodologies and are constantly testing new and emerging methodologies. We'll work with you to find the best research solution to your question. This might be quantitative research if you need statistical data, useful for benchmarking, measuring and gauging opinions and views on your charity. Alternatively, qualitative research provides more in-depth information if you want to understand why people think and behave the way they do. There are lots of other methodologies; we can advise on these as well as helping you through the technicalities such as sample selection, representation and appropriate weighting.
