Research

RESEARCH Approach

Research is at the heart of our work as we seek to provide insights that catalyse positive social change. From exploring unmet social needs of vulnerable groups in Singapore, to documenting the landscapes of social finance and corporate philantropy in Southeast Asia, our research is detailed and diverse. We also help organisations become more innovative and inclusive, and provide services to evaluate the impact of CSR programmes.

 

At LCSI, we undertake three types of research: Applied Research, Landscape Studies, and Consultancy.

Landscape Studies

We provide thorough reports on key topics and issues through secondary research and interviews with important players. Examples of such studies include social finance and corporate philanthropy in Southeast Asia, and poverty and inequality in Singapore.  

Consultancy

Our consultancy work helps organisations innovate and become more inclusive. We do this through identifying key areas of social need where investments could be made, and by evaluating impact of CSR programmes. 

Applied Research

Through qualitative primary research with the social, government, business and civil sectors, we identify pressing social challenges and sustainable solutions. Examples of work to date include unmet social needs faced by vulnerable groups in Singapore, such as migrant workers, the low-income elderly, persons with disabilities and the food insecure.
