York Consulting has been undertaking economic and social research for over 30 years.

Our expertise covers both primary and secondary research methods, combined with an excellent appreciation of the policy environments in which we operate.

Our research portfolio includes online surveying, telephone surveying, facilitated focus groups and workshops, depth interviewing and literature reviews. We also have expertise in class-leading qualitative analysis software.

Our research brings us into direct contact with a wide array of stakeholders including politicians and senior executives, project funders and managers, employers and employees across all industry sectors, carers and volunteers. We regularly undertake research with children and young people, vulnerable adults and underrepresented groups, in all cases tailoring our approaches accordingly.
