Who we are

Policy Connect – the think tank that works with parliamentarians, business and the public sector to help improve policy.

Founded in 1995, we are not-for-profit, cross-party, independent and transparent.

What we do

By working inclusively, we develop policy ideas that are practically achievable and politically possible. To encourage the exchange of ideas, we:

• Conduct evidence-based research informed by the widest possible consultation.
• Run cross-party parliamentary groups on behalf of their parliamentary officers.
• Organise seminars and events for policy-makers and sector representatives.

To find out more, please visit our website and follow us on Twitter.
