We help with finance, strategy, design, data, and building partnerships. We blend our skills in different ways to offer a bespoke response to specific social challenges.

We are experts in systems change – shifting the way a whole system works around a social issue in order to ensure long-lasting change. 

Our multi-skilled team works across diverse issues in the UK and globally.

Data and digital insight

We use data and digital to help services work more effectively and efficiently, so they can empower people and communities – especially those that are marginalised – and improve lives. We build safe and trusted data and digital tools to help services work better for people.

Finance and funding

We run financial analysis and use investment tools to understand the costs in a system. We look at how money flows around an issue and how this can change to achieve better outcomes for people – introducing socially-motivated investment, such as social impact bonds and social outcomes contracts, if that can help.

Outcomes-focused partnerships

We build unique partnerships that span traditional boundaries to focus on the end outcomes that matter most to people. We bring together the experience of communities and professionals to design flexible contracting and delivery models that can continually adapt to deliver better outcomes.

Strategy, research and design

We approach social issues strategically and holistically, treating each one as unique. We seek solutions that can have the biggest possible impact on a large scale. We’re human-centred and user-focused, always involving people with lived experience.
