Across virtually all areas of social policy, evidence shows that there are still inequalities – in terms of access, experiences and outcomes. The reasons for these differences are many and they vary for each equality group.
So what is social research? Versiti has unmatched expertise and experience when it comes to understanding the needs and experiences of the UK’s vulnerable and minority social groups. We have worked with service users and non-users from all equality groups, with service providers and with policy-makers to highlight specific needs, help address inequalities and improve outcomes.
Our experience spans healthcare, education and skills, labour market participation, crime and policing, the prevention of violent extremism, housing and homelessness, digital inclusion, media and culture, financial capability and environmental sustainability. Our team has directed social research, consultation and evaluation projects for most government departments, numerous non-departmental public bodies and many local authorities.
Our cross-sector expertise, methodological approaches and ability to generate trust among harder-to-engage communities mean that we deliver robust and insightful evidence to drive change.
Let's make this happen.
