Literature and Policy ReviewS

We undertake desk-based literature reviews and policy analysis utilising access to online academic journals and databases.

Qualitative Research

We specialise in the use of a range of methods including interviews, focus groups and case studies to highlight the importance of nuanced, narrative accounts.

Mixed-method Research

Programme objectives and outcomes are unique and often require a combination of research methods to evaluate them. Our work incorporates quantitative research including primary data generation and secondary data analysis.


We carry out internal, operational reviews and stakeholder consultations. Our expertise ensures we can provide support with organisation ‘self-evaluation’ including data monitoring and performance analysis.
