Natcen: Understanding People

Natcen is the National Centre for Social Research.

The organisation, with its 400 research staff and 1200 interviewers, produces in depth and far reaching surveys into social attitudes.

Natcen’s annual survey into British Social Attitudes is now in its 25th year and provides invaluable insight into what Britain looks like and how the population thinks. Natcen rigorously defends its independent status and although 80 percent of its work comes from Government, it has no affiliation with any political party and remains solidly impartial.

The organisation puts its success down, in a large part, to its staff. The scale and range of services it can offer, combined with staff expertise and experience, enables Natcen to undertake complex and innovative research that has the potential to change social policy.
