Evidence based policy development
Policis provide extensive support for evidence-based policy development and strategic planning through a range of studies, workshops, briefings and commissioned projects.
Our mission is to bring an independent, expert and evidence-based perspective to policy thinking and formulation. We seek particularly to illuminate the demand side of the policy equation, to highlight consumer and service user needs and dynamics and to illustrate how different policy options or levers might impact at both a macro and micro level.
We have particular expertise in evaluating the likely impact of policy levers and sizing and valuing policy outcomes. Analysis of policy outcomes will take in the impacts on different groups across multiple dimensions. These may range from the cost and revenue effects, the likely social or economic impacts on communities at local or national level to the potential for progress in achieving socially desirable objectives.
