Collective Encounters works with voluntary sector organisations and public services to co-design research and evaluation projects that enable them to:

  • engage with stakeholders in creative ways leading to co-created activities and services
  • assess impact and quality of services and recommend areas for improvement
  • undertake research with specific geographical communities or communities of interest.

Take a look at some recent research and evaluation reports from Collective Encounters, please note that some research and evaluation services have been undertaken with highly sensitive topics or vulnerable communities and are therefore confidential.
