The Centre provides high quality, evidence based, advice to policy makers at the international, national, and local levels. To inform this we conduct research projects on market development and lending practice, the impacts of debt and exclusion from mainstream markets, and local strategy development. We also provide reviews of relevant academic literature and briefings for the media and policy makers on key thinking.

We work closely with colleagues within the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion to pull together project teams with high level skills in both quantitative and qualitative research methods and also have access to our own dedicated pool of Associate research staff.

Examples of current and recent projects can be found from the links on the left of this page. If you would like further information about our work or wish to involve the Centre in one of your own projects or events please contact Damon Gibbons.
