We appreciate that sometimes it is hard to find the resources to conduct your own research project in-house. Organisation-specific projects give you an opportunity to propose a project that directly meets the needs of your organisation.

Perhaps you want to evaluate a program or service you are running? Maybe you want to know about best practice models? Maybe you would like to collect data from your clients or staff to understand their needs better? Or perhaps you want to collect data to scope how to best expand a program or service into a new area? Whatever your needs are, we’d love to hear about them.

We recognise that sometimes needs are shared by more than one organisation or that a program is a partnership between you and others. We are happy to receive joint applications for organisation-specific projects and recommend that you read about joint applications in the FAQs on the Expressions of Interest page.

Visit our current projects page to learn more about the organisation-specific projects we are currently undertaking with our partners. 

If you are interested in partnering with us but have some questions, we invite you to contact us about your needs.
