The strategy builds on what we are already doing in terms of gathering and processing information to ensure we make best use of that information, both internally and externally, and will help to highlight gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed.  

It is designed to promote the collection, evaluation and use or publication of information that: 

  • adds value or insight to the Commission in the achievement of its objectives
  • provides evidence to inform the Commission as to whether it is achieving its objectives and whether activities are having the intended impact
  • supports the Commission in regulating the sector effectively
  • enhances the knowledge of stakeholders including charities, donors, beneficiaries and the general public.

The strategy will be implemented through annual research action plans which will set out key activities, deliverables and timeframes.  

Where possible, we are also committed to making the data we hold open and available to other stakeholders for research purposes, enabling its use and application in further ways.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or feedback on the research and information strategy.
