The New Economics Foundation has a core team of specialist consultants, associates and experts but we also pull together expert teams from across the wider organisation.

On each and every project, we bring together a unique combination of expertise and experience of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, both from within the UK and globally.

If you are not sure who to contact about a consultancy or training project, or have a general research enquiry, please see the contacts page for a link. 

We work with a number of associates on a regular basis – please see the Associates page for details.

For more details about each person, click on their image or name below. For information on the wider New Economics Foundation team please visit the main website.

NB: Many of us are working remotely at least some of the week so please contact us by email in the first instance.
