"Origin Research has worked with and supported our organisation with evaluation planning and design for measuring impact for several years.   Due to our confidence in their expertise we used them for the completion of an independent literature review that would influence the design of new services for the social sector.  The resulting work was professional and credible and was circulated throughout the sector and within Government.  The Origin team have genuine investment in the Not For Profit sector which shows in the way they work with the sector and means they have built the knowledge required to add meaningful value to the projects they are involved in."

"RNNZ have been extremely fortunate to work with Lucy and Natalie of Origin Research Trust in establishing a piece of exploratory work that will assist our work in raising the profile of rural nurses in NZ and factors influencing recruitment and retention to rural communities.  Both Lucy and Natalie have been exceptionally approachable and helpful in guiding this piece of research for our group.  We have been really pleased with the quality of the research and ongoing support to help us make the most of the findings which provide us with current nurse perceptions and barriers associated with working rurally, enabling us to advocate with evidence to support the role of nurses in rural NZ."
Rhonda Johnson, RNNZ committee member, Clinical Health Planner, Jacobs.


"It was great to connect with Origin Research Trust to implement a review of our audience development programme "The Portal". This was an opportunity to utilise the external expertise and critical reflection that exists within the team at Origin, to explore the scope of our programme and to help us in exploring the possibilities and reflections for how to re-shape the programme moving forward. Both Lucy and Natalie brought a depth of experience, as well as a genuine enthusiasm in supporting our work as an arts-based for-purpose organisation. It was a pleasure to work with them, and to have their assistance in communicating the ideas behind the research with both the internal team and our external stakeholders in an accessible and engaging manner. It is important for for-purpose organisations to be able to clearly articulate the scope and impact of their work, and Origin Research Trust provided great support and resources to enable this moving forward as part of our ongoing work in the region."
Dr. Jeremy Mayall, CEO, Creative Waikato.
