Breslin Public Policy

Maximising Social Impact

Impact matters: at Breslin Public Policy we are committed to working with partners in the private, public and voluntary sectors on assignments, projects and programmes that enable individuals and organisations to maximise their social impact.

We are also developing a range of social impact programmes of our own, such as Give Five and Use Your Vote, and we’re actively seeking investors to work with us on these and other projects. Click on the logos on the right for more information.

Finally, our specialist consultancies such as Transform Education, Transform Politics, Transform Communities and Transform Organisations give an idea of the range of our expertise – we are in the process of developing a website for each and an associated blog.
