Evaluation and Research

Introduction

Orb8 works with organisations to encourage service development and excellence including undertaking service audit, evaluation and research.

Delivery

All our work is delivered by highly experienced and qualified professionals with a particular interest and additional training in relational, social and psychilogical theory to practice. Our research team is led by senior lecturers with doctoral qualifications focused on the experience and needs of marginalised groups, and working towards equality in organisations, communities and society. This includes psycho-social studies, health and nursing, psychotherapeutic practice, management and leadership and social work and social care. Our team has a wide range of experience in undertaking mixed methodology and qualitative studies, research and evaluation.

What we offer

Therapeutic service development

Many services wish to offer or be known as a therapeutic provision but there is often a lack of clarity about what is meant by this and what provision should actually include and look like. We can undertake Therapeutic Audits of services and provide a development plan with ongoing consultation and training to support an organisations therapeutic approach.

Evaluation

We provide evaluation of current provision, looking to develop suitable tools or use existing ones to measure and evidence outcomes and impact. This can be used to commend positive aspects of services to others and also to assist services in identifying and working on areas of improvement.

Research

Using our extensive links to Universities and other academic institutions we can provide ethically sound and substantive mixed methodology and qualitative research into service provision and service user groups. Incorparating report writing, and dissemination including journals and conferences.

  • local authorities, social services and social care, fostering and adoption
