Talking Taboos - GPs and self-harm amongst young people

Charity / Third sector market research

How do you know your messages and campaigns are effective in boosting awareness of your organisation?

What’s the experience of your supporters, partners and service users as they interact with your charity?

What do businesses want from a corporate partnership and how can you convince them that your charity is the best fit with their organisation, and develop new ways of meaningful engagement and contribution?

Whilst these are critical questions for any charity, answering them is easier said than done. We have the reach, skills and experience to address your challenges:

  • National and regional surveys to measure brand and messaging awareness
  • Be it new product development or customer experience, we bring deep insight into supporter and stakeholder experience. From individual supporters, to large corporates, to professional stakeholder groups, we’ve spoken to them all and know best to engage to bring out the issues that matter
  • Expertise in researching those 'hard to reach' audiences and sensitive issues, including black and minority ethnic (BME) groups, people with physical and mental health problems and the financially vulnerable.

We’ve worked with a wide range of charities to answer their tactical and strategic objectives. UNICEF, Macmillan Cancer Support, British Red Cross, Alzheimer Scotland, Men’s Health Forum and countless other charities have all benefited from our nuanced insights.


We put our expertise in research to good effect by actively supporting Talking Taboos, a campaigning brand set up by our parent company Cello Group to make a positive difference in the world by helping to tackle some of the unspoken taboos that plague society today.

Alongside our Cello Group colleagues and in conjunction with the charity YoungMinds we played a major role in researching the  Talking Taboos - 'talking self-harm' report published in October 2012 which looked into society’s perceptions of young people who self-harm. Our contribution focussed was on the GP community, often at the front-line of helping these vulnerable young people. The report can be seen on the left of this page.
