As part of our social mission, we’re working to bring affordable, quality assured research to small charities who otherwise can’t afford it. No frills, no fuss, just good quality research carried out for all the right reasons.

Research4Change™ keeps it simple.

We assess the research needs of an organisation and then broker free or affordable solutions sourced from our pool of research students, early career researchers, as well experienced researchers with time on their hands. This might involve short-term assignments or placements. These assignments are carefully specified and structured, with ongoing mentoring, training and quality control built in.

We’re working to create a win-win situation for the voluntary organisations and researchers that participate:

  • For organisations, Research4Change™ offers access to much needed research capabilities and capacity … helping to gather the evidence you need to make your case, extend influence, and improve or sustain your work.
  • For researchers, Research4Change™ offers a foot up on the career ladder … an opportunity to develop your track record, make new connections in the voluntary sector, and build a long-term career conducting research that matters.

We’re still at an early stage with the programme and have been inundated with demand from organisations and researchers alike.

Check in with us from time to time on progress as the programme develops.
