Whitley Researchers (WRs) are a research team committed to working together in a friendly and inclusive way where everyone’s work is equally valued. Our research centres on collaboration, co-production and participation in order to help local communities and organisations understand and tackle complex issues surrounding well-being and social exclusion in South Reading. We are trained to use a range of methods from questionnaires and secondary data analysis to interviews and focus groups.
Participatory research focuses on working with local residents so that projects are run with communities, rather than about them.
Starting from April 2019, we aim to produce monthly newsletters to let everyone know what we’re up to. Our newest (and first!) newsletter is here:
