For more than 20 years we have worked with most of the UK’s Ministerial and non-Ministerial Departments, as well as the governments of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Our staff specialise in research methods or are dedicated to a particular area of policy, such as health, policing or business enterprise. The findings from our research directly inform government policy and strategy. We take this responsibility seriously and ensure that all of our work withstands close scrutiny.

Our lengthy and successful experience with National Government combines with our sector research experience in Local Government and Communities, Public Health, Education, Transport, Planning and the Environment, and Housing to ensure excellence in research and insights to inform policy and strategy.

In recent years, we have conducted hundreds of surveys using a variety of data collection methods, analysis and reporting techniques. These include some of the largest National Government surveys, such as the Employer Skills Survey (ESS) for UKCES, and the Small Business Survey (SBS) for BIS, as well as surveys for:
