I4P – The Bond Board

The Bond Board
Assets Based Research Project,
2016-2017

Through an existing reputation for participatory research in Rochdale, the Bond Board approached I4P to conduct a two year Participatory co-produced project.

The aim of the research was to help the Bond Board to understand how to design services appropriately in order to promote meaningful engagement. The project worked with the Bond Board over two years, using Sustainable Livelihoods analysis to analyse HARP service users experience of the Bond Board.

The Homeless Advice and Resilience Project (HARP) was a Big Lottery funded partnership project between two organisations that support homeless and vulnerably housed clients, which began in September 2016. The project is for excluded and marginalised individuals and provides intensive 1:1 support, short term crisis solutions, a specialist welfare rights service and opportunities for clients to become involved in peer research.

I4P used participatory and co-produced approaches to analyse HARP service user’s experience of the Bond Board. The research used a five fold, assets based analysis approach to evidence impact and barriers service provision. These research findings would allow the Bond Board to better design services focussed around clients.

The Bond Board logo, text that says "thebondboard", the words "the" and "board" are black, and the word "bond" is white with a triangle at the top of the word. All of the text is on a red background.
