Why work with our Research Team? 

Our team is made up of skilled associate researchers with experience in a broad array of human services—which we believe lends to a better understanding of the challenges and complexities that may arise when doing research in this field. We are committed to rigorous research that can be applied to improve the quality of human services and, ultimately, improve the lives of the individuals being served. We have extensive experience establishing partnerships and working successfully to contribute to local, state and federal service delivery agencies so that they can best meet the needs of those they serve. We are passionate about supporting human service agencies so they can best use evidence that is available for system improvement. 

“Case-UK was commissioned to undertake a review of our charity at a time of substantial change. The staff facilitated the review with a professional and challenging approach whilst maintaining a positive atmosphere both in the workplace and review meetings. Their approach was robust and stood up to intense scrutiny from both staff and trustees. Excellent work”  Dave Gilbert – WAA Chairman
