Working with Policy in Practice we’ve developed information that supports, informs and helps us monitor the effectiveness of our strategies. Without a proactive, preventative approach we fear for the longer term impact on residents.

With Policy in Practice’s help, and working with Newcastle City Council, ALMO Your Homes Newcastle was able to understand the impact of welfare reforms on their tenants. YHN identified rental income at risk and targeted support to their 27,000 households.
The Policy in Practice LIFT Dashboard has allowed us to draw together previously disparate databases into one easily accessible platform. It maps our data against future predicted changes in inflation of household goods and predicted welfare changes and gives the team an easily accessible platform to see what residents’ situations are.
The LIFT Dashboard allows Cornwall Council to take a more focused approach to assisting those impacted by welfare reforms, and improves on our previous, slightly scattergun, approach. This extra focus allows us to have a greater impact on vulnerable residents in Cornwall without increasing resources.
