Here's what Defra clients are saying

"By having Methods alongside during this programme development, it’s really given us the space to do all of the appropriate engagement that we need to do. And without that senior engagement, without that policy engagement time, this programme would be nowhere near as successful as it is now."

Project | marine Natural Capital and Ecosystem Assessment

"Methods provided really helpful expertise that we didn’t have easy access to, on setting up of programmes and helping us to think about and structure our work. They also added value in their approach to managing the relationship with us – through willingness to adapt to our evolving needs and requirements."

Project | Climate Change Adaptation

“We secured an extremely high number of respondents to the work which has huge business benefits for us around increasing confidence in future work. This is a testament to the quality of the work undertaken and the effort that has gone into generating a user focused data collection tool."

Project | Enabling a customer approach to design and delivery

"The Methods team was extremely approachable and a good cultural fit."
