We're Adam and Emma, freelance social research and evaluation consultants. Or are we a small research agency? Maybe we're independent researchers? External evaluators? We've still not figured this bit out. 

We work with charities, not-for-profit organisations, the NHS, local authorities, public services, museums and more. All doing great things to make a difference to people's lives.

Our research and evaluation helps these organisations to improve health and care, tackle inequalities, support people's wellbeing and shape local services.

How we can help you
