Maximising Social Impact

 

Impact matters: at Breslin Public Policy and Breslin Social Impact 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.

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 dedicated web presence for each and an associated blog.

Our recent work on governance across the sectors showcases this approach. Click on the Transform Governance logo on the left and you’ll be taken through to transformgovernance.org.uk, where we highlight a body of work that we are developing with a range of partners, a number of whom are showcased just under the logo.

We appreciate your interest, we’d welcome your feedback, and we’d love to work with you.
