We offer a full range of research techniques from desk research to focus groups and depth interviews. As a research partner, we can advise on planning research programmes, designing surveys and commissioning fieldwork agencies to ensure the best value for your research spend.


Our partners have all worked at Board level in the public, private and third sectors and understand strategy and the client perspective. We ensure our analysis and recommendations are always practical and focused on the client’s strategic objectives.


Our background in communications means that we can work closely with your own comms team or with outside agencies to ensure research is put to good use, through segmentation, targeting, messaging and even the execution of campaigns.

What Our Clients Say

We wanted a partner who could provide high quality research and analysis and also help us to turn this into effective campaigning.

Woodnewton's combination of desk research, strategic insights and communications advice has made an invaluable contribution to the federation's current programme of campaigns.

Woodnewton Associates analysed the wealth of complex research that exists on perceptions and experience of social care, and using their extensive strategic communications skills made actionable recommendations for our communication strategy. They picked up a difficult brief quickly and turned it into insight we can really use.
