Impact Assessments

Impact assessments can provide value for both community and business projects. Organisations may require impact assessments to be completed for multiple reasons, to access funding and make a case for investment; act as evidence in contract submissions; support planning applications; or advise organisations on how to maximise their activity.

We’ve developed this workstream over the last two years and have conducted assignments at an economic, social and environmental level for various projects.

In economic assessments we work to guides provided by HM Treasury and analyse direct and indirect impacts of investment including turnover, gross value added, gross and net outputs, and employment.

For social impact assessments, we use qualitative techniques to understand how specific courses of action and investment have and could impact both individuals and communities.

Environmental impact assessments involve research to identify the urban and biodiversity issues and opportunities that require consideration during a project’s development and delivery.

In all of this work, we aim to provide financial summaries of the projected work, so that the client can present investors with detailed breakdowns and stakeholders know what can be expected from their investment.
