Resources for Change has a great set of skills in research.

We focus on research that can be used to bring about change in communities and organisations that serve them, working for community organisations, third sector groups, local authorities and government. We are often contracted to undertake pieces of work that include research; this frequently means reviewing data that is already collected but not collated.

However, our expertise lies in gathering and analysing disparate data from a range of sources, that is both quantitative and qualitative. We can we can combine with innovative methods including collage, photography and film as well as infograms, graphics, mapping and GIS. Analysis of such information and drawing out the key nuggets whilst understanding and retaining the weight to be given to these findings is crucial in providing an independent and yet thoughtful end product for our clients. Our aim is to be inclusive and participative, enabling the real voices of people to be heard through the research.
