The research methodology

  • Deepened the organisations understanding of their local communities
  • Ensure the research identifies real needs
  • Created a sense of local ownership and participation
  • Avoided unnecessary duplication of provision
  • Gave local people a say in the future of their communities
  • Add value to local community groups and local people

The research enabled a cross section of community groups and business to deliver their services whilst engaging the community throughout the project. The research also enabled organisations to set clear goals and gain a credible understanding of the area in terms of needs and opportunities.

The research methodolgy is not theoretical but action orientated resulting in a clear mandate for each organisation to bring value to their clients and their communities.

The approach involves the following phases. Each phase moves progressively from high-level to more detailed investigation.

Phase 1  Project inception meeting

Phase 2  Desktop research

Phase 3  Stakeholder focus groups

Phase 4  Community engagement

Phase 5  Final debrief

Phase 6  Close – Over to the client
