Focus groups

Focus groups are a great evaluation choice if you’re looking for in-depth information and deep insight from a small group of people on a variety of levels, from a small area of interpretation to a whole project.

NB: If you would prefer to pay for items by invoice at a later stage please choose 'Cheque Payment' or 'Direct Bank Transfer' option at checkout.

More details

Focus groups are usually carried out with groups of five to thirteen participants, and can reveal some really rich data. When well executed, a focus group creates an accepting environment that puts participants at ease and allows them to thoughtfully answer questions in their own words and add meaning to their answers, as well as allowing for in-depth discussion and free flow of ideas between the participants. It’s a fun, yet highly effective evaluation tool for any organisation.

We will work with you to make sure the question framework meets your organisational or project objectives. During the session we will keep the group on time, focussed on the topics, and ensure that all key issues are addressed, whilst also encouraging participation from all the group members. Following the session, the information we gather will be synthesised into a report with recommendations, for your immediate use.

Who is this for?

Focus groups are great for anyone who would like to find out some in-depth information from a specific group of people! They could be used to evaluate a volunteering experience, to gain feedback from a project team at the end of a project, to evaluate an exhibition with visitors, or for a range of other purposes.
