Data analysis helps local authorities to identify vulnerability, target support and track change
CTR modelling helps councils design the best possible scheme to help residents hit by COVID-19
Our Benefit and Budgeting Calculator is the best tool available to grow the financial resilience of the people you help
Administrative datasets can yield powerful insights that give a fuller picture, and help drive change. Over 100 local authorities already use LIFT to combine their datasets with our policy engine to make better decisions
Ensuring you have the best Council Tax support scheme is difficult, especially when caseloads change dramatically. We help councils model different scheme options based on many complex and combined local factors
Benefit and Budgeting Calculator
Our benefits calculator is outcome-focused and gives advisors information they can trust. They can easily explain complex benefit changes and give people the advice they need to make decisions

Debt is not about numbers, debt is about people, behaviours and circumstances. As a sector, we should focus less on getting debt out of people, and more on how we get people out of debt. We fix debt problems by focusing on people.
Steve Coppard, Cabinet Office
You can explain benefit entitlements but people may not fully grasp the numbers. Having the Benefit and Budgeting Calculator to visually explain using colour coded charts really help as it’s something people can relate to.
