what our clients think

Cambium provided us with superb editorial assistance in drafting the full and summary reports of the Commission’s Inquiry into human trafficking in Scotland.

Cambium were highly professional; especially in terms of impressively assimilating complex information effectively and efficiently, in providing high-quality editorial assistance and written work throughout, and in discussing, agreeing, and then meeting all timelines in what was an intense and high profile project. They are to be highly recommended.


Graham O’Neill, Manager of the Commission’s Inquiry into Human Trafficking in Scotland
Cambium has provided highly professional and extremely effective support to the Existing Homes Alliance since its inception. They have been central to the Alliance’s success in developing and pursuing policies aimed at achieving warm, affordable, low-carbon homes for Scotland. Their advice and guidance on influencing the Sustainable Housing Strategy has been invaluable, ensuring the Alliance has a high profile with the Scottish Government, Scottish Parliament and key stakeholders.

I have no hesitation in recommending Cambium for policy development or public affairs work.


Alan Ferguson, Director, the Chartered Institure of Housing Scotland & Chair of ExHA
  
Working closely with Malcolm was a really enjoyable experience.  He was always available and willing to work around our requirements, delivering high quality research in a speedy manner. I would highly recommend Cambium to others.

Francis Stuart, Research and Policy Adviser, Oxfam Scotland
  

 I can highly recommend Cambium Advocacy for research, analysis and design of reports. They completed a report on area-based home energy efficiency initiatives which was thorough, well-written and well-presented. The report was done to schedule and on budget, and took account of the steering group's comments.

This report has gone on to influence government policy, supporting the introduction of a universal or non-means tested home insulation programme.

Elizabeth Leighton, Senior Policy Officer, WWF Scotland

Cambium delivered an entirely bespoke product for us, tailored exactly to our organisation’s needs. The whole process from working together on the brief to the production of a fully comprehensive, timely, well researched, articulate and thought provoking report was flawless.

We are using Cambium again and would not hesitate in recommending them to others.

Ally Thomson, Head of Communications, Equality and Human Rights Commission Scotland
  Cambium were exceptional to work with as they took the time to listen carefully to what we wanted to achieve and worked hard to produce the final result.  They were excellent at drawing out information from our member organisations through focus groups to put into a format that was easy to understand and that we will be able to work with in the future.


Gemma Pettie
Communications, Information Officer 
We commissioned Cambium Advocacy to research and report on our members’ experience of working with their local authority. They delivered to schedule and on budget, and kept up good communication throughout the project - we were very happy with the process, and the report is excellent. The work was thorough and thoughtful, and the report’s recommendations exactly what we needed - we'll be using them to help develop our work programme for the next 2 years. More immediately, the case studies and good practice tips are of great value to our members now. I would highly recommend Cambium.

Suzy Goodsir, of the Scottish Communities Climate Action Network Steering Group 
Cambium provided support to Citizens Advice Scotland in developing our strategy for engagement with councils.

Their professionalism and commitment to meeting our needs was second to none and we have been delighted with their work.

David Brownlee, Head of Services
Cambium Advocacy has provided a hugely valuable service for Save the Children stepping in to do some complex research work and providing information that has helped to shape our policy calls.

The service we received was professional, friendly and helpful whilst working to a tight deadline, and the end result was one of quality. We will certainly look to Cambium again for any future policy and research needs. 

Douglas Hamilton, Head of Save the Children in Scotland
Cambium proved invaluable to our campaign on pre-payment meters. .. They were able to advise us on getting media coverage and they supported group members to prepare for television and radio interviews.

Cambium assisted with writing press releases and briefings and by suggesting the content of parliamentary motions.

Cambium assisted with the planning of a community conference on fuel poverty and advised how to launch our campaign at the event.

With Cambium’s assistance our campaign gained a much higher profile than we expected. We intend to use Cambium again in the future as our campaign progresses.
