Research and consultancy

We not only help people move towards better lives, but also carry out consultancy and research projects for employers and other organisations. We can command fees for this kind of work, which in turn helps us to improve facilities and can go towards funding for outside courses.

Our consultancy and research can increase the efficiency of many groups. This could involve any of the following:

  • Advice on the development of employment and skills strategies for public bodies
  • Support to other charities in setting up employment and skills programmes
  • Research projects in the area of employment and welfare policy

We have been able to bring our experience and skills to a number of diverse projects. Examples include:

  • Helping local agencies in the Balkans and Middle East to set up employment and social enterprise activities
  • Street Kids International: support to a Canadian-based international development NGO (Non-Government organisation) in setting up a UK sister charity to manage new projects in Africa and Asia
  • JobCentrePlus: research into needs, aspirations, and support requirements of Incapacity Benefit claimants in Southampton
