Understanding how people see your organisation is essential for developing better strategies. Do people mention your charity spontaneously? Are they aware of your campaigns?
The Charity Awareness Monitor provides a unique insight into the general public and their views on charities. It is an in-depth and cost effective way to track your brand, discover what people think about your organisation, understand how the sector is changing and measure your performance against over 100 other charities.
With comprehensive knowledge of how the public feel about charities, you can set benchmarks, plan effectively and make decisions about your vital resources based on strong evidence. Our extensive contextual research into the charity sector means your results are presented within a broader picture, with analysis and recommendations on the implications for clients.

Join over 60 charities that subscribe to this research to get regular and extensive insight at an affordable price. Compare awareness and support with peers, right across the sector. That way you can be clear about what makes your organisation different and really stand out.
Develop evidence-based ways to get your audiences to take action
We will analyse results specific to the needs of your organisation. For example, we can segment responses according to a range of criteria, from age to specific characteristics, such as how people feel about a cause. Use evidence about your audiences to secure support internally for targeted campaigning or fundraising campaigns.
Become a more resilient organisation
We’ll help you interrogate important trends revealed by the research, including how the public sees the charity sector and what they think about giving. These insights will help you understand how your charity’s income might be affected, so you can future-proof your brand.
Identify new audiences
Find out if people can name your organisation, and if they’d support you now, or in the future. You can identify people’s misperceptions so that you can work out ways to reach new supporters, volunteers, service users and funders.

“Without research we’d be basing what we do on gut feeling, rather than evidence. The monitors are a useful temperature check and allow us to see what the general public are actually thinking.”
