How to use your policy impact analysis dataset

“Working with Policy in Practice has been a game changer for us. I have proven that the recommendations you gave in our Policy Impact Analysis have achieved results. You were absolutely on the money.”

“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.”

“We want to move beyond sticking plaster solutions. If we can promote work and independence by understanding who’s impacted by welfare reforms we’ll have more resources available for those who still need our support.”

“We take partnership working very seriously and we only work with organisations who we genuinely feel can make a difference. Policy in Practice very much falls into this category.”
