Our Services



ATD Research and Consultancy are experts in gap analysis, service evaluation, service re-design and best practice recommendations.

We support our clients to review their existing provisions, highlight what’s working and where improvements need to be made. namely by talking to those involved and invested in these provisions.

We provide objective, independent and informed approaches to deliver the best outcomes for providers and service users. We can qualitatively evaluate the impact of new services or make suggestions about where new services may need to be considered or implemented.

If you commission a service and want to know how it's performing, beyond the key performance indicators, data and statistics - we can support you in answering key questions such as; is the service helping the right people? In the right way? At the right time? What do people who use the service think of it? How can the service be run even better? How can we best meet the needs of service users?


Running a small but spectacular service to support marginalised individuals? Not sure where the next funding stream is coming from? Want to showcase the amazing work you're doing?

ATD Research and Consultancy can provide an independent, academically rigorous evaluation of your service and dossier of excellence to provide to potential funders, partners and commissioners. 

We can also support you in the bid writing process to varying degrees. 



Training and Consultancy

ATD Research and Consultancy have provided training for individuals nationally and internationally.

We provide specialist training on motivating substance misusing offenders based on extensive research and work with this cohort. The training advances the use of traditional recovery models and tools by encouraging consideration of quality of motivation, rather than its mere presence or absence. It considers how psychological frameworks can create spaces and environments that allow intrinsic motivation to flourish.

We also train on initiating behaviour change in offending cohorts and using forensic psychology to inform therapeutic environments. 

We offer consultancy and support to frontline workers working with offending cohorts particularly around motivation

The trainer from ATD was excellent - engaging and thoughtful, with good pace and she invited discussion appropriately
