About us

Shortwork is a social research organisation based in Liverpool with clients across the UK. We provide bespoke research and evaluation projects, as well as training, to public and third sector organisations.
 
We are experts in qualitative and creative research with a focus on gathering rich information about people’s experiences. We specialise in participatory research methods which empower members of a local community or service users to take the lead in gathering data, drawing conclusions and reporting their findings.

Led by Rowena Hay and Roger Newton, Shortwork brings together a network of Research Associates with expertise drawn from a range of fields including health, social care, the built environment and the arts. The team are united by a commitment to research that does more than tick the box, but results in real change that is of benefit to individuals, organisations and communities.
