From needs assessments to impact studies, our team will design a framework to help you understand your organisation, programme or service.
Drawing on the most appropriate qualitative and quantitative methods, we offer breadth and depth of understanding through surveys, interviews, focus groups, and more.
We take an action oriented iterative approach to support ongoing quality improvement.
We value diversity of voices and seek to include creative methods to stimulate new ways of thinking and highlight traditionally undervalued knowledge.
We generate engaging easy to read professional reports and outputs with the option of utilising video, photography, audio and infographics.
We uphold co-creation through participatory methods. We involve communities in our research process, and gather frontline insights to drive change.
We value the scope formative approaches to evaluation offer to put research into action, helping to shape programmes and interventions.
In order for your organisation to be sustainable it is crucial to understand whether or not its behaviours, activities, services and products are working optimally. As a neutral party, we capture the thoughts, feelings and perceptions beyond the metrics held by staff, service users, stakeholders to understand what is really going on and how your operations and services can be improved.
We gather quantitative and qualitative data, analyse it and write it up, addressing important questions for your organisation.
Our evaluation work usually results in the production of a report and staff engagement sessions, as well as a series of presentations to key stakeholders.
Formative evaluation is an approach which allows for emergent findings to be used to improve the programme process that is being evaluated whilst its activities are still forming. Its appeal lies in helping to forge collaborative evaluation and operational team activities, along with benefiting improvement during the course of its implementation. Formative evaluation holds much potential for learning, as well as for team and programme building.
