Policy in Practice, along with its local government partners, won two major awards at the Public Finance Awards 2022 on 29 November, and was a finalist in a third category.

Winner of Solutions Partner Award

Policy in Practice won for using data analysis to help local authorities distribute £19 million of Covid support to residents through the Household Support Fund

Winner of Aligned Public Service Delivery Award

Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council for the use of data in joined-up safeguarding using the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Tracker (MAST) from Policy in Practice

PFA 2022 winner

Finalist of Digital Finance Project of the Year Award

Islington Council for their £1 million Pension Credit take-up campaign using data from the Low Income Family Tracker (LIFT) from Policy in Practice

 We are incredibly proud to work with our local government partners, trailblazers in using data for good.

These awards recognise their success. It’s rewarding to see how our tools help clients to use their data to change lives for the better.

For example, a man identified via our LIFT platform was living on £55 per week. LIFT identified £138 per week in unclaimed Pension Credit. He got £1,794 in back-dated entitlement and could get a £650 Cost of Living payment too.

The individual stories from clients, of vulnerable people being protected from harm through MAST or improving financial resilience for thousands of low income households through LIFT,  are very real. They remind us that making a difference is not about data, or numbers, ultimately it’s about people.

These awards recognise the latest successes achieved by local government. With the support of local authority Chief Executives, Directors and Officers, we are making a big difference to people’s lives.
