About the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen)



50 years experience

NatCen have been carrying out high quality social research for over 50 years. We are a non-profit organisation, independent of all government departments and political parties.




Uncovering real opinions

We are commissioned by government and charities to uncover the real views of people in Britain today. What we find out is used to inform policy and make a difference to the lives of people across the nation.




Helping the nation

We are a charity and information from surveys we carry out is made publicly available. So it’s not just helping our clients, it’s used by other organisations trying to improve life in the UK.
