Our research experience helps us to produce high quality evaluations, think papers and strategy. We produce Theory of Change/ Logic Models for our evaluations.

We identify strategic and operational directions to help organisations improve their communication with service users, stakeholders and audiences.

Our evaluations have included:

  • Artistic / creative development
  • Audience engagement
  • Digital innovation
  • Inter-disciplinary working
  • Education
  • Social / community development
  • Youth work

Creative Action Research is solution focused. By working with clients, learning starts with user experience and testing out ideas. This means on the ground delivery, followed by direct evaluation leading to change. Stakeholders who are affected by planned changes are responsible for deciding on courses of action that seem likely to lead to sustainable improvement. The emphasis of the research changes from producing a report to the development of the researchers and their environment.
