Partnership with M-E-L Research Ltd.
CfCR’s chief partner is M-E-L Research Ltd. which is a unique and highly specialised research and consultancy practice – designed specifically to help clients who want to improve public services and get the most from their limited budgets.
M-E-L Research aims to be the UK’s most progressive, forward-thinking, and cost-effective research and consultancy practice, working across the full range of the UK’s public services – councils, policing, housing providers, healthcare, waste management, businesses, third sector, and government delivery agencies.
Across these services M-E-L Research stands for measurement, evaluation, learning – the three core principles for evidence-based public service excellence. This means not just surveys (measurement), but high quality insight and interpretation of the results (evaluation), and ways of achieving service improvement (learning).
By uniquely combining these three services within the business, M-E-L Research provide integrated specialist expert research and consultancy support – real added value at an affordable price – that out-performs competitors in helping clients reach true standards of excellence.
