Welcome to NLH Partnership

Research for charities, pubic sector, and third sector organisations

NLH Partnership - social research experts



For more than a decade we’ve been working with clients across the country to conduct the highest quality social research.  All of our projects are tailored to clients’ needs.  They include:

  • Bespoke questionnaire design

  • Large and small scale surveys of specific populations or communities

  • Online survey design and administration

  • Community consultations

  • Needs analyses

  • In-depth interviewing

  • Focus group discussions with stakeholders

We’re specialists in the use of both qualitative and quantitative research methods, and we often use a ‘mixed-method’ approach to ensure that we truly answers the research questions.  We’re skilled at collecting and rigorously analysing complex statistical information, and in using qualitative data to provide a valid picture of stakeholders’ views and experiences.

In terms of qualitative research, we specialise in using participatory research methods to fully engage community members and other stakeholders.  This helps us to fully understand the views and perspectives of community members and service-users, particularly those who might not typically engage with research.  

Much of our work with communities and service-users has been conducted with so-called ‘hard to engage’ groups, including particularly ‘vulnerable’ individuals.  We’ve conducted numerous one-to-one qualitative interviews with parents, young people, and other service users who have experienced very difficult life circumstances.  We’ve carried out research and evaluation work with ethnically and culturally diverse communities across England, and worked with stakeholders at all levels.

We’re a London-based research organisation, but work with clients across the country.  We conduct research in London, the South East, and further afield. 

We can handle all your research needs - from design, through to analysis and dissemination - and we’ll work closely with you at all stages of the research process.
