Research

Wellsprings work with your church to provide thorough and objective analysis of the needs of your parish, helping to give you additional insight and a solid basis for focusing your church’s resources on the greatest needs. We have access to the Local Insight Tool which enables us to do this in an up-to-date and detailed way.

This research can be done as a mixture of both the latest quantitative data on the community but also through conducting community interviews to supplement and complement the data. Whilst we recognise the expertise of those members of the church who will have significant lived experience within the parish, our experience is that an external perspective and voice can shed new light on the way forward for your community engagement.

Using the Local Insight Tool we can prepare a Parish Community Audit which will identify some of the key needs and strengths of your community including areas of deprivation, health and education outcomes, population breakdowns, economic indicators and much more.
