Forever Consulting provides social and economic research and consultancy services across the UK with enthusiasm, integrity, and creativity.

We were established in 2017 and have been delivering great projects, making clients happy and reinvesting all our profit into Forever Manchester ever since.

What defines us?

  • We go beyond the data. We explore what’s really going on. Our clients enjoy independent and honest advice, helping them make sound decisions.

  • We enjoy analysing complex data and evidence from a variety of sources. We communicate information with clarity and in a compelling way.

  • We love engaging a diverse range of stakeholders and communities, and we use a blend of approaches to ensure their voices and experiences are heard in a meaningful way.

  • We employ people who are highly skilled, who genuinely care and who want to make a difference.

Our Expertise

Our team is a mix of economists, social researchers, community engagement specialists and a planner. We work across four broad specialisms:

  • Research and strategy:
    We provide bespoke evidence-based research for organisations who want insight into a specific issue, their neighbourhoods, communities and service users.

  •  Business cases and impact assessments:
    We help organisations develop the business case for their project and service ideas by identifying and testing feasible delivery options.

  • Performance management and evaluation:
    We help organisations put systems in place to measure what they do and the impact of their work. We also provide independent evaluations, helping clients to understand how well they perform and their impact.

  • Stakeholder and community engagement:
    We believe in the mantra ‘nothing about us, without us’ and that communities should be at the heart of making decisions that affect their lives and areas.

Our Clients

Our clients include local authorities, charities, community organisations, private developers and housing associations. We also work alongside partner firms in multidisciplinary teams including planners, architects, landscape architects, urban designers, and other specialists.
