We have rarely worked with such lovely, conscientious partners – it has been an absolute pleasure.

Araba Webber – VInspired

We have been working with CFE since 2014 and they are responsive, proactive and work collaboratively to get the best out of our evaluation data.
CFE Research are now working with us to tailor the next evaluation and I look forward to seeing the continued success.

Laura Furness – National Lottery Community Fund

CFE have been a pleasure to work with and in particular Sarah Robinson’s vast knowledge of Inclusion and Diversity meant we got so much more back from the study than we had initially expected.  We wouldn’t hesitate to appoint CFE again.

Jane Hannah – England and Wales Cricket Board

Sport England commissioned CFE to undertake evaluation of the £18.2m Inclusive Sport programme. The contract was delivered on time and within the parameters laid out in the brief, with good communication throughout.
