Bespoke Research and Consultancy Services

Bespoke Research and Consultancy Services

Organisations will often require a unique piece of research or consultancy, either as a stand-alone project or to complement a wider undertaking. We have learned that no two projects are ever the same and Southern Horizons (UK) Ltd pride ourselves on developing bespoke research and consultancy solutions for clients that are determined by their individual requirements, timescale and resources.

We have completed a wide range of bespoke projects for public, private and social purpose organisations, both large and small, using our toolbox of research techniques and combining our methods to produce the best results. Our outputs can be presented in a number of ways including through written reports, presentations and workshops.

Featured Case Studies:

Mapping and Gapping of Labour Market Support for Difficult to Reach Groups

Client: Devon County Council

Working alongside Transform Research, we undertook research to identify skills training, opportunities and help available to ensure access to the labour market for difficult to reach groups across the Heart of the South West. The report identified the provision that was available, including funding sources, as well as highlighting gaps in support for different geographic areas and types of client group.

Communications Research

Client: Plymouth Community Homes

In conjunction with Actuate Marketing, we completed a market research project to inform a communications strategy for Plymouth Community Homes (PCH). A mixed methods approach was adopted that combined three separate surveys with a series of follow-up focus groups. With 1 in 5 people in Plymouth living in a PCH home, the results have been used to develop the Association’s on-going communications with its key stakeholders.

Stakeholder Consultation

Client: Cornwall 365

In collaboration with Buckman Associates we assisted Cornwall 365 (which is a network of cultural players and tourism businesses designed to raise the region’s profile as a year-round destination for the arts, culture and heritage) with bespoke consultation to inform their activities. This included an on-line business survey, attendance at a Cultural Ambassadors Event and a series of qualitative telephone conversations with ten of C365’s Cultural Ambassadors. The consultation helped to identify what had been working well, the difference the programme had made and what participants would like it to focus on in the future.
