Since our launch in 2008 we have grown considerably and now have a team of over fifteen specialist consultants, associates and experts.  Additionally, as the consultancy of the New Economics Foundation, we can 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 project, or have a general research enquiry, please email research@nefconsulting.com.

If you have a training enquiry or are looking for support on development of a Theory of Change, please contact training@nefconsulting.com in the first instance.

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