event seminar

Survey design in the charity sector

About this event

This Leading Impact seminar will be exploring survey methodologies and questionnaire design.

Most charities use surveys in one way or another, but with varying levels of success. There’s already lots of guidance available, but little that directly addresses the challenges faced by charities. For example;

  • What are the most cost-effective ways to run high quality surveys?
  • How do we get beneficiaries to take part?
  • How do we get the most accurate answers from survey respondents?

This session is for people with a little or no experience in running surveys, and will cover both survey methodologies and tips on questionnaire design. There will be an opportunity to share your own experiences and ask questions of our experts. The training is hosted by NPC’s Principal of Charities Evaluation and learning, Elliot Trevithick.


This event is part of our 2022 Leading Impact series of seminars.
