Recent bespoke research partnerships
In 2015, DSC Research partnered with Cobseo (The Confederation of Service Charities) to undertake and produce Cobseo’s first ‘Members’ Survey’
Senior Researcher Stuart Cole and Head of Research Tom Traynor utilised a mixed methods, qualitative and quantitative data approach to create research allowing Cobseo to understand the views and experience of its members.
DSC Research assisted with designing the survey questions and management of the data gathering process. We then undertook a comprehensive analysis of the data and produced a full professionally printed report, detailing the outcomes of the survey.
In 2016, DSC produced a bespoke report for the armed forces charity Combat Stress, in collaboration with The Royal British Legion.
DSC’s combined its extensive database with bespoke analysis to produce this unique piece of research.
