Our Researchers in Need Programme  aims to help families that face economic hardships as a result of their family member having worked in the field of market, social, and opinion research and having been injured or worse due to their work.

In some countries, asking someone their opinion can be a dangerous, life-threatening exercise. Market, social, and opinion researchers have been killed or injured in the line of duty whilst attempting to capture the views of ordinary citizens. For their surviving family, the loss (be it temporary or permanent) of the breadwinner can be catastrophic.

We answer the call of those families that face economic hardships as a result of their family member having worked in the field of market, social, and opinion research and having been injured or worse due to their work. We provide emergency financial support to research families in need.
