Recycling doorknocking campaign in Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon

In the new year, Enventure Research will be working with Armagh City Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in Northern Ireland to deliver a doorknocking campaign to increase recycling awareness and participation.


The campaign will involve a team of 12 Recycling Promoters who will be recruited from the local areas to engage with residents on their doorstep about their local recycling services. Recycling Promoters will be fully trained ahead of doorknocking and will be carrying out five-minute interviews with residents to gather their views on a number of recycling related topics.


Enventure Research is looking forward to working with the Council, who secured funding for this project through the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA). A report detailing the findings will be written for the Council upon completion of the doorknocking activity and will show results for each of the Council’s legacy areas to highlight any differences in views and participation.

Cheltenham Christmas Survey 2018

Enventure Research is delighted to have been commissioned to carry out research on behalf of Cheltenham BID at this year’s Christmas Market.


Enventure’s team of trained interviewers will be conducting 250 face-to-face interviews at a number of sampling locations near to Cheltenham’s Christmas Market. The questionnaire will be designed in partnership between Enventure Research and Cheltenham BID with an aim of gauging visitors’ perceptions of and satisfaction with Cheltenham at Christmas, awareness of Christmas events, recall of marketing and advertising, and identifying visitors’ favourite aspects of their visit as well as any areas for improvement.


A full report will be written for Cheltenham BID detailing the findings of the research, in order to inform the development of future Christmas Markets and other festive events in the borough.

Qualitative Universal Credit research on behalf of Manchester City Council

Universal Credit Full Service was rolled out across Manchester between October 2017 and July 2018. In order to gain a better understanding of its impact, Manchester City Council conducted its own quantitative survey with residents and has subsequently commissioned Enventure Research to conduct qualitative research in order to gain a more in-depth understanding of its financial and psychological impact.


Throughout December, Enventure Research will hold three 60-minute focus groups and a series of 20-minute in-depth telephone interviews with Manchester City Council residents. A discussion guide will be designed between Enventure Research and the Council to explore topics covered in the initial survey such as the application process, receiving Universal Credit payments and its impact.


Upon completion of fieldwork, Enventure will provide Manchester City Council with a full report detailing the findings of the focus groups and in-depth interviews, together with verbatim quotes from participants to give further insight.
