Listen to Dawn Cove, London Borough of Redbridge

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Dawn Cove, Head of Benefits, London Borough of Redbridge for taking the time to speak with us exclusively for IRRV 2021 about how they use our award-winning Benefit and Budgeting Calculator and LIFT platform to support their customers.

Listen back to our conversation with Dawn, opposite.

Hear how our clients use our tools to make a difference


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 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.

Multi-Agency Safeguarding Tracker

MAST is the first of its kind to link adult, children, fire, police and health datasets, meaning that social workers have more information to better support vulnerable people.

There are 51 households claiming Pension Credits which, for a couple, is worth £255 per week. This means £676,000 annually has been brought into our district which I think is an awesome result for what was, in realistic terms, a few afternoons by three benefit staff.
Jane Worrell, Folkestone and Hythe

The Benefit and Budgeting Calculator is easy to use, and the results are given in a clear format. The links that guide customers on how to claim are very useful. The grants and charities section is a brilliant addition too.
