Andrea Grant

Senior Researcher 

Andrea GrantAndrea Grant has extensive research experience in both the community and private sectors, having worked as a social researcher for over twelve years.

Andrea began working with Fabian in 1995 and has since been involved in both establishing and delivering many aspects of Dattner Grant's Alignment Audits with numerous clients. Much of this work has been a combination of quantitative and qualitative research. 

At the beginning of her career, as a team member at Econsult - a specialist private consulting company - Andrea was involved in a large number of service reviews of government programs. Her projects included a review of the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) for the (then) Victorian Department of Health and Community Services and an evaluation of the Health Services for Homeless Young People Program - one of the Victorian Government's responses to the Burdekin Report. These projects involved a substantial quantitative analysis of client use and service satisfaction levels, coupled with qualitative research, including focus groups with SAAP workers, clients and government representatives. The combined analysis led to the identification of service gaps and a redesign of the service systems.

Following this, Andrea was employed by the City of Darebin as a social planner and was responsible for the development of new service models across a range of council programs - recreation, youth services, children and family services. In all areas, this involved both the compilation and interpretation of quantitative data of client use and service satisfaction levels and qualitative research such as focus groups with clients and interviews with key stakeholders.
