ORIMA Research is a recognised leader in conducting Indigenous research for government agencies.
We have a keen appreciation of the specific challenges presented by Indigenous research including the logistical difficulties of conducting research in Australia’s remote communities, and the cultural issues and protocols involved in conducting research with Indigenous target audiences.
Our consultants are able to reconcile these complexities with the realities of government service and communications delivery. Our expertise means we achieve actionable research outcomes for our clients while ensuring our research is conducted in appropriate and respectful ways.
In approaching Indigenous studies, as with all of our research, we take an apolitical, non-ideological stance. We bring no preconceived views to our assessment of government policy and strategy, instead relying on empirical evidence, particularly evidence based directly on the experiences, views, preferences and opinions of Indigenous people themselves.
Examples of organisations that we have conducted Indigenous research for include:
- Australian Government Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs
- Australian Government Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy
- Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations
- Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing
- Australian Public Service Commission
- Australian Taxation Office
