Traverse is an independent social-purpose consultancy that supports better decision making through the power of inclusion. We deliver evidence, insight, and strategic advice through our research, evaluation, engagement, and consultation services.

We create agenda-setting insight and offer strategic advice on social and environmental issues of local, national, and global significance. Our work encompasses sectors including local and national government, health and social care, utilities, environment and future energy, voluntary and community, and infrastructure.
