Why is my opinion important?

We work for a wide range of clients including:

  • International, European and UK national, regional and local government bodies use the research to gain accurate and up-to-date information which is used for future planning and to shape future policy decisions.
  • Major charities commission research in their areas of interest to better understand people's views and experiences.
  • Universities and colleges conduct academic research in association with Ipsos MORI.
  • Private sector organisations use research to understand how their organisations, products or services are perceived, for example.
