About DC Research

DC Research was established in 2008 and has spent the last fifteen years developing a national reputation for providing high quality research services to clients across the UK.

We primarily work in the economics, creative and cultural fields, including heritage and museums, and have carried out work for national organisations and agencies – such as Arts Council England, Association of Independent Museums, British Museum, Creative Scotland, DCMS, National Lottery Heritage Fund, Museums Galleries Scotland, Welsh Government – as well as work for organisations in places across the UK.

We have a particular focus on applying economic research tools and methods to the cultural and heritage sectors – and have used these skills to support culture and heritage organisations in advocacy, funding applications, evaluation, organisational and action plan development, and assessing economic and social impact and contribution.
