The Organization

We are a team of policy experts, led by one of the architects of Universal Credit. We believe government services can be delivered more effectively and help people toward greater independence, if they are simple for people and organisations to understand. 

Our analysis shows how each individual household is affected by all policy changes, now and in the future. This helps local authorities to target resources, meet their statutory obligations and spend money more effectively.

We use a scientific approach to data visualisation that can drill down to individual households and help people to take control. Our software models how the policies of four government departments affect households on low incomes, helping people to understand how government policy affects them so that they can make better decisions and lead more fulfilling lives.
