Social Analysis and Research Services

creative thinking and new perspective


Welcome to the home of Social Analysis and Research Services

We provide pathways that help individuals and organisations towards understanding, through qualitative and narrative methodology and storytelling, how social and personal issues can be negotiated and understood. Our particular interest is bridging the gap between what people say and how corporate businesses, agencies, departments and funders interpret their narratives. We also carry our research into social issues and operate a social analysis service.

Our aim is to provide a model that helps to develop the tools to solve problems in a holistic way. Through research and audit we provide social and personal analysis for a wide range of subjects.

Our service focuses on research with a qualitative flavour. We are happy to conceptualise projects from concept to completion or to carry out analysis that forms a small part of the whole.

A large part of our work involves analytical research services aimed at a wide base of social and community projects. We can provide a full interview service complete with transcripts and analysis, or an analysis of existing data.

Service providers could perhaps employ both our individual program and our organisational service in a combination of research and investigation into difficult issues such as domestic violence and post traumatic stress. An example of how this works can be found on out Service Providers page.

We are based in central Manchester but can travel throughout the UK and outside the UK.

We provide outcomes in a variety of media including reports, podcasts, webinars, meetings and events, presentations, drama and creative writing.
