how we work 

We want to do work that is interesting and enjoyable, and to be open and honest in all we do. We take the time to learn what our clients need, and we tell them about our progress via regular project meetings. We are transparent in explaining our methods, what we know from the evidence and what we don’t know. We ask all our clients for feedback and improve by listening to what they tell us. 

our values 

We want to make a positive contribution to the communities we work in. We are registered supporters of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter. We provide research and support to charities and social enterprises at discounted rates. We give staff time off to volunteer. We donate a percentage of our annual profits to local good causes.  
Many of our projects involve asking people for their data and feedback. We treat all personal data shared with us as if it were our own personal data. We are registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioner's Office and are Cyber Essentials accredited. If you want more information on how we use personal data, please see our Privacy Policy.
