We were really pleased with the service from Voxter. The team were great to work with, they turned round a nationally-representative poll at short notice and we invited them to present their findings to an audience of stakeholders and media. The survey produced topline responses to our key questions as you'd expect, but also fleshed this out further with quotes from participants. That brought some of the more human elements of a focus group to complement the hard data from a quantitative survey.
Steve Ballinger, Communications Director, British Future
British Future, an independent, non-partisan thinktank addressing British identity, integration, migration and opportunity.
British Future wanted to research the public's views on the status of current EU migrants in Britain and Britons living in the EU, in the case of a Leave vote in the EU referendum. They wanted to find out whether the public thought it important that these people's status should be clarified, and indeed what should happen to them. If a consensus was found, British Future planned an intervention in the Brexit debate.
1,018 people participated in a balanced and open discussion on what Britain's future outside the EU might look like. People exchanged views on migration and the economy, as well as the practicalities and timescale of change. Participants were asked direct questions about the topics British Future wanted clarity on, and we received overwhelming confirmation of public opinion, which underpinned a campaign to secure clarity and a decision on these important issues.
We presented our findings in a briefing on 11 April to the campaigns, academics, NGOs and the media.
