From statutory and non-statutory inquiries to independent reviews of high profile incidents or organisations, our expertise and experience is tried, tested - and trusted.
Director of Operations, UK public inquiry
“They’re genuinely interested in the project... they’re emotionally intelligent. They think: 'Who are the people involved… what do they need?' It doesn’t feel like we’re doing business... it feels like a mission - a shared mission we have.”
We’re here to share your challenges
Public inquiries and independent reviews have a tough operating environment. The expectations can be high, while trust is low. The scrutiny can be relentless, while resources remain limited. We know this because we’ve been there. So our specialists are here to provide you with experienced, tailored support at every stage of an inquiry or review. We can help you to:
Form a cohesive, visibly independent multidisciplinary team at pace
Access research and policy capabilities while remaining independent of government and other bodies
Deliver timely and focused engagement with victims, survivors and other key stakeholders
Act with empathy while remaining impartial, evidence-led and delivery-focused
Communicate complex information with clarity and confidence
Publish findings, recommendations and reports which gather support for positive change
How we work with inquiries and reviews
We provide Chairs, secretaries and legal teams with flexible ‘plug in’ support or provide an end-to-end service, depending on circumstance and need.
Our services cover all stages of an inquiry or review, from initial set up to report writing and publication and include:
Engagement and consultation with stakeholders
Prioritisation and planning of work
Procurement and logistics
Research and analysis
Communication and digital
Hearings and commemoration support
Report writing and publication
Our experts take pride in their specialism and we sure our teams have the skills and knowledge they need to be trusted ambassadors for clients.
We invest in regular training on trauma, anxiety and other mental health issues by NHS psychologists who provide support to inquiries and communities following major incidents.
We conduct research into what the public expects from the inquiries carried out in its name and share our learning with stakeholders across the sector.
Because we're part of Crest Advisory, we're able to draw on a wider range of expertise in policy and safeguarding from our consulting practice and independent think tank.
