We believe in the power of data and technology to change lives

Our tools help local authorities unlock their data to target support as effectively as possible

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
How viable is your council tax support scheme?

“We’re modelling future impact so any CTR scheme for next year or after will take into account predictions around caseload change. This will allow councils to have a good idea of scheme cost and who will be in their caseload for future years.”

Zoe Charlesworth, Director of Policy and Operations, Policy in Practice

LIFT Platform

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

CTR Modelling

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 award winning benefits calculator is outcome-focused and gives advisors information they can trust. The software helps them to easily explain complex benefit changes and give people the advice they need to make decisions

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.”

Having the Benefit and Budgeting Calculator to visually explain using colour coded charts really help as it’s something people can relate to.”
