Enfield Council’s good news story of 2022

Policy in Practice is a key partner for Enfield in our efforts to address homelessness and inequality. Using the LIFT dashboard has enabled us to target our resources more effectively to produce better outcomes for our residents.

We are now starting to use the dashboard to model the effects of proposed policy changes to enable us to maximise the benefits to both the Council and our residents.
