“Somerset CC commissioned ERS on behalf of the Heart of the South West LEP to provide a robust evidence base to inform the EU Structural Investment Framework and wider Strategic Economic Plan. The team at ERS were very knowledgeable, professional and helpful, showing flexibility in the face of very challenging deadlines.”

Carrie-Anne Hiscock, Somerset County Council Senior Economist


“ERS has produced an economic impact assessment for Newcastle Gateshead Cultural Venues (NGCV) for the last 9 years. Having robust evidence for our collective impact has been incredibly important. We have been very satisfied with the service provided and the sound methodology and approach taken”

“ERS undertook the evaluation of Sova’s ESF funded Increasing BME Employment, Tackling BME Economic Inactivity project. They researched thoroughly and understood our funders, stakeholders and partners, responding quickly and effectively to changes and requests, making the management of evaluation activities effective and less cumbersome.”

“Professional service from start to finish. Pro-active in shaping our initial brief including suggestions for improvement, both in outcomes and methodology, which resulted in a far better end product. ERS provided additional value by establishing an on-going focus group of young people for NRW to work with to help develop and improve services and materials.”

“The dedication of ERS as our external evaluators has meant a really thorough analysis and set of recommendations. It was great to work with an evaluation company so at one with the ‘youth-led’ aspect of the festival and enabled young people to shape the evaluation processes”

“Considering its complexity, ERS demonstrated, from the outset, a clear understanding of the project and they dealt with the variety of issues within each partner organisation in a very professional manner. The final report was clearly written to a high standard and in a relatively short time scale.”

“The economic impact assessment produced by ERS has provided us with valuable evidence to demonstrate the benefits Bristol Airport delivers to the West of England. Incorporating analysis of direct and indirect impacts, inbound tourism, and consultation with stakeholders, the report combines robust data with an engaging narrative.”
