Social Research

Social research is a valuable tool in accessing social science knowledge, evaluation, data collection, documentation support, training and translating research findings into policy and practice. SIFT Consulting’s motivation stems from the desire to collect data of the highest quality, to undertake research in the public good and to enhance knowledge and contribute to informed decision-making.

SIFT Consulting has strength and proven experience in policy analysis, needs assessment, feasibility studies, scoping studies and literature reviews. SIFT can support organisations in survey design, data management, analytical and qualitative skills and summarising diverse and complex information sources to useful reports. The work undertaken is evidenced based and follows ethics principles to ensure validity of research.
