About Policy in Practice

Policy in Practice is an award-winning, socially focused start-up company. Our mission is to reduce poverty. We do this by simplifying the welfare system using policy insight and clever technology.

Our software and data-driven consultancy services are used by local authorities, housing associations and private sector organisations who are focusing on the impact of policy changes.

Our founder, Deven Ghelani, was one of the architects of Universal Credit, a major reform to simplify the benefit system. Deven set up Policy in Practice to communicate information to people on the frontline in a fast, user-friendly way, and help people to make the decisions that are right for them.

Want to work for us?

We’re always looking for people who are passionate about making policy delivery simpler.

If you’re interested in what we do, especially if you have a background in policy, design, or technology or you have experience in frontline services or the welfare system, please get in touch.
