WRI's team of analysts and associates work with not-for-profits, community organisations and service providers to build understanding of markets and trends, develop strategies, prepare independent program evaluations, and support grant funding applications.
A sample of our recent work is set out below.
Infrastructure Grant for Community Services
WRI was commissioned by LiveBetter (formerly CareWest) to assist in collating data to prepare a grant application to develop a new facility to support community health and disability services in Orange.
WRI was commissioned by Regional Arts NSW to complete a review of the impact of the Artstate events. This report examined the economic impact of hosting the four conferences in regional locations throughout NSW as well as exploring the importance of the conference for art administrators and practitioners in regional NSW.
Aboriginal Arts and Culture Officer Review and Policy Issue Paper
WRI was commissioned by Regional Arts NSW, the funding for Aboriginal Arts Officers throughout regional NSW over a 10 year period was analysed in this project. WRI designed a methodology to put a value on the number of jobs created and the volume of people who learnt new skills from the programs delivered over the decade the officers were funded.
