Nearly two thirds (64%) of adults aged 15+ in Britain think that taxes should be increased as a way of funding the NHS.
In 2016 Ipsos MORI was commissioned to conduct an ambitious piece of research on behalf of Alzheimer’s Society.
Ipsos MORI’s Charities research team was set up more than 20 years ago. We are an enthusiastic team of specialist researchers with years of experience conducting research on behalf of charities, Royal Societies, social enterprises, and the voluntary sector. The charity team closely works with topic-specialist teams, such as the Environment and Energy team, the Health team, the Education, Children and Families team, and the International team. This makes sure that the research we conduct is underpinned by both a broader understanding of how the sector works, and by in-depth issue-specific knowledge.
The April 2017 Ipsos MORI/Economist Issues Index shows concern over Brexit remaining high with half (48%) mentioning it as one of the most important issues facing Britain.
Ipsos MORI’s dedicated Policy and Evaluation research team leads a range of evaluation projects for UK, European and International clients across the public and not-for-profit sectors. Our multi-disciplinary team of evaluation professionals, economists, and policy experts harness Ipsos MORI’s strength in conducting robust social research across the full spectrum of policy areas to deliver high quality and impactful end-to-end evaluation solutions for our clients.
Ipsos MORI is the market leader in local government research. We have undertaken research projects for more than 250 local authorities, giving us unrivalled experience and understanding of the sector. We also work with local partnerships, health providers, police authorities, the voluntary sector, think tanks and sector bodies such as the LGA, SOLACE and London Councils.
The Ipsos MORI Health and Social Care team specialises in research, evaluation and consultations for the NHS and wider health and social care sector. We offer clients tailored solutions, using the full range of qualitative and quantitative methods, and produce insightful and useable outputs that stand up to scrutiny.
Within the the Ipsos MORI Health and Social Care team we specialise in public health research. We have a long history of working with national bodies, local government and voluntary agencies to understand and promote the health and wellbeing of local populations through understanding population health profiles, analysing individuals’ health attitudes and behaviours, and informing preventative interventions and service redesign.
The social care and benefits systems are undergoing a period of enormous change. The Care Act 2014, constraints on local authority budgets and reform to the benefits system are all affecting the lives of disabled people. Within the Ipsos MORI Health and Social Care team we carry out a range of research to explore people’s use of care and support services, and to understand people’s experiences of living with disability and accessing benefits. We have also explored understanding of social care among the general population, and measured public attitudes to disability. Our research in this area includes depth interviews, ethnography, surveys and use of secondary data analysis.
Research related to social care and disability often involves vulnerable audiences and we are fully aware of our ethical obligations toward research participants. Indeed, we are the only research agency in the UK to have two members of staff who sit on the national Social Care Research Ethics Committee. Our research team is experienced in conducting research among older people, those with dementia and people with different types of impairment.
