Education, employment and economic development

Good quality employment is vital to the well-being of the individuals that find work and to society as a whole. Our work in this area has included analyses of the impact of training and employment support to disadvantaged groups as well as the impact of regeneration and community development projects. We are interested in working with clients to explore the impacts of new ideas that aim to promote employment and economic development.

Just Economics Living Streets Report Cover
The Pedestrian Pound

This report presents evidence that investment in better streets and places can deliver commercial returns to businesses and investors, as well as improve consumer’s perceptions of high streets. Four performance indicators for these investments were identified through a review of the existing literature:  impact on existing business performance (footfall and retail); urban regeneration (new business, rental income, employment, social exclusion etc.); improved consumer and business perceptions, and business diversity.

Just Economics Emmaus Report Image
Emmaus

Emmaus Communities offer homeless people companionship, a place to live and work, and an opportunity to integrate back into mainstream society. For those that need and want it, the Emmaus community also offers Companions – as residents are known – a permanent home. In 2013, Just Economics produced an extensive SROI analysis of the impact of Emmaus communities across the UK, and explored the success of the approach in ending homelessness in the UK.
