We undertake large and small scale research projects on specific topics ranging from housing to worker wellbeing to food security. Our research enables effective analysis and policy development, and informs project design to achieve targeted outcomes.
We develop monitoring plans (including key indicators) and provide regular monitoring reports to clients. This facilitates understanding of the scale and impact of issues and tracks trends over time to measure the success of policy or project interventions.
We build enduring relationships through meaningful collaboration with project partners. We prioritise the dissemination of research and monitoring outputs to inform project design, process improvements and decision-making across agencies and sectors.
