GuineaPig waives fieldwork fees during Black History Month

News UK

UK – Fieldwork company GuineaPig Fieldwork is offering fieldwork free of charge for UK projects researching the views of black people this month.

The firm has said it will offer 100% off fieldwork fees within its control for UK qualitative and quantitative research studies, valid during October.

Theo Francis, managing director, GuineaPig Fieldwork, said: "We believe the voice of black people in the UK goes unheard far too often. This initiative won't change that reality overnight but if it inspires even a few more studies researching this demographic, it’s a step in the right direction."

Francis said some of the company’s suppliers have committed to matching its offer.
