Community Research

 

What we do

 

We are all about making communities’ voices heard through:

Research

We review and analyse existing knowledge and data; we undertake surveys, focus groups and interviews; we ask communities to give their views and describe their experiences in their own words; telling their own stories. We are professional market researchers, well versed in traditional techniques…but we are also brave enough to experiment and try out new ways of working.

Engagement

We get out into communities and ask questions; we talk with individuals and create relationships with community organisations. We attend community events to ‘take the temperature.’  We seek varied ways for communities and the individuals within them to have their say. 

Consultation

We assist clients with stakeholder mapping; help them to shape and design consultations and undertake independent analysis of the feedback. Thanks to our strong relationship with The Consultation Institute we stay up to date with best practice and the case law that defines how consultations should be undertaken.

“Community Research managed our research project efficiently and met the agreed timetable. Their report was well written and helpful. The project produced insightful findings which we are using to inform our on-going work to promote our guidance and learning materials for doctors.”
