Just Economics is a social and economic research company founded in 2010.
We specialise in economic analysis of social and environmental issues and value for money. We have over ten years experience of working with and developing Social Return on Investment in the UK and overseas.
We aim to occupy the space between academia and policy by producing rigorous research that is also accessible to a
range of audiences. We believe that evaluation should draw on a range of different types of evidence that respond appropriately to the question being asked.

"As the UK's leading digital inclusion organisation, the impact of our work is large-scale and highly complex, with a large number of social outcomes which are difficult to quantify. Just Economics approached this problem with a thoughtful and carefully-planned approach to SROI, taking the time to consult us and make adjustments where required, and to collate data from a wide range of stakeholders to develop a model that provided clear and comprehensive evidence of the impact of digital skills programmes for socially excluded people"
