Qualitas Research is a research consultancy based in West Yorkshire. We provide research and evaluation services to voluntary organisations, community groups and public sector agencies from across the UK. Qualitas Research was founded by Kim Morral who has been involved in social research since 1997. Our main research interests are in the areas of mental health, health and well-being, health services and social care, health promotion and inequalities.
Evaluation and Impact Measurement is at the heart of what we do, but what excites us is seeing our work making a positive difference.
Our evaluation work assesses the effectiveness and impact of social policy programmes across each key stage of the life cycle of the programme. We can support you setting up expected outcomes and baselines, use evaluation to tell you whether your programme is on track or provide summative evidence and measure the impact and social value of the programme.
All our client work benefits from the direct involvement of Project Directors with high level methodological expertise and an expert understanding of the role of evaluation in the social policy decision making process.
