Social research for the public sector

Social research for the public sector

Despite the rumoured ‘end to austerity’, the public sector is still having to establish where further cuts could be made, or which services could be out-sourced without affecting frontline services.

We provide tailor-made and highly cost-effective social research to help achieve this, bringing our private sector expertise into the public sector and ensuring that taxpayers’ money is used to maximum effectiveness.
