“We've had a really great experience working with Collaborate. Monique and Katie were very responsive, thorough and organised throughout the project. They had a strong understanding and genuine interest in our objectives for the research, which was carried out and reported to a high standard. They gave excellent presentations on the research to staff in our office and were very professional, knowledgeable and personable throughout these. We're really pleased with the outputs which will be important for our influencing work.”

“Collaborate worked with us on a qualitative project that required them to find a specific target audience in a short period of time, and they delivered to the brief perfectly. The insights gleaned from the research are invaluable, highlighting exactly where we need to take action and how we could shape our actions. Monique and Katie are thoughtful, approachable and intelligent researchers who think through projects so that contingencies are planned for and the research delivers to the brief. It was a pleasure to work with them.”

"Collaborate were one of the few bidders that really understood our brief. They also understood the timescales we were working to: they showed flexibility and ensured we always had an up-to-date timeline. They did a great job of incorporating all of our additional questions into the research as it progressed and we appreciated the opportunity of being able to observe and reflect on live focus groups. The debrief was timely and the write-up was very good – well written and concise. We are really pleased with the new evidence Collaborate delivered. It was good to work with you!"
