Policy Press
A neon red sign saying change

Impact case studies

For us, making a difference is about more than metrics, it's about change on the ground through publishing work that addresses issues that affect individuals' day-to-day lives. Just as importantly, it's about changing minds by encouraging debate, challenging the status quo and shifting perspectives.
