Chrysalis Research is a thriving research agency specialising in education and health.
We formed Chrysalis Research in 2010 to support organisations looking to achieve their goals through having a positive social impact in the education and health sectors. We achieve this through our values and research ethos which is recognised by our clients and consistently demonstrated by our researchers:
• We are collaborative and responsive in the way we work with clients
• We are committed to helping our clients to achieve their goals
• We are passionate about the sector and making a difference
• We are transparent in the way we run our business and conduct research
• We are expert at researching our sectors and supporting social impact
• We provide research that is insightful and that provides clients with a clear direction.
Our core team of six mixed-method researchers has extensive experience of education and health research and policy, and a strong understanding of the education and health sectors’ audiences. As a team, we have a great deal of experience conducting research with a range of audiences who use and work within the education and skills sectors, including teachers, opinion leaders, adult learners, young people and employers.
Our research helps inform planning, implementation and evaluation across a number of different areas:
• The public sector – policy development, consultations, funding decisions and communications planning.
• The commercial sector – qualifications and product development, the development and evaluation of corporate social responsibility activity.
• The voluntary sector – strategic review, identifying fundraising opportunities, designing and evaluating public engagement or awareness campaigns.
We handle research projects from briefing stage to reporting. We can also support the dissemination of findings and advise on the implementation of communication campaigns, interventions and policy initiatives.
Cornish and Grey set up as a social enterprise in 2015 with the mission to help small and medium social purpose organisations articulate their social value and to measure and communicate it – both internally (helping them learn and grow) and externally (helping gain and retain funding). Ongoing evaluation contracts include:
· Pilotlight – a charity that provides capacity support to charities that help disadvantaged people. We have developed the organisation’s current monitoring and evaluation strategy over a number of years and provide ongoing support guidance and training to its project managers. Our aim is to ensure that project managers collect data using tools that are integrated into project activities (ie. supporting them with a self-evaluation process).
· We are the ongoing independent impact evaluators of the C&A Foundation’s international ‘Inspiring World’ campaign. Since 2015, we have conducted annual pre and post campaign research and follow up focus groups in a number of different countries including China, Brazil, Mexico and a number of European countries.
· Pause works with women who have experienced, or are at risk of, repeated pregnancies that result in children needing to be removed from their care. We have helped them scope the need for their offer in new areas and provide ongoing support to help them evaluate – and communicate the effectiveness of – their existing programme. This work has involved building models of cashable savings and examining the potential for system change within partners of the programme.
I have been in roles in and around the Community and Voluntary Sector for a number of years, with a particular interest in the monitoring and evaluation of local services and projects. I am currently doing a master’s degree in research at the University of Brighton (MRes), where I am looking at the the ‘data burden’ CVS organisations can be placed under by multiple funders seeking evaluative data. I have a particular interest in health and social care, mental health, homelessness and local not-for-profit infrastructure.
