Who we are

We are onEvidence; an independent psychological and social research, training and consulting agency. We work with our extended family of researchers, practitioners and experts-by-experience to design and deliver qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods research, and training and learning solutions that we are proud of.

Our agency was established in response to a pressing need for research-based policy innovation and sustainable education, training and continuing professional development (CPD).

Our clients are public, private and voluntary sector organisations and institutions, including local authorities, universities and schools, education professionals and trainers, social services, emergency services, charities, and policymakers.

Our founder, Dr. Roxanne Khan, is a prolific researcher and educator with over 20 years’ experience in research, policy and practice. She established onEvidence after discussions with local government, the police, social workers, charities and other front-line practitioners, who told her that they needed high quality affordable research and evidence-based professional training and CPD.

So, Dr. Khan convened a network of practitioners, experts-by-experience and academic researchers, to create a new space and innovative way of providing research and education services. onEvidence was born.
