About Us

We are the leading global consultancy specialising in designing and developing social protection systems – one fundamental way that governments can guard people from poverty and vulnerability. 

Our team has delivered over 150 projects for governments, the UN and many other clients from Brazil to Vietnam since 2010. 

A British-Kenyan company, we began when Stephen Kidd and Richard Chirchir put their heads together with a group of like-minded development professionals to change the way countries address poverty, inequality and other key development challenges. Since then, our offices in London and Nairobi have grown considerably and we have recently expanded our work around the globe with our new office in Australia.

OUR MISSION

As our knowledge and experience expands, our mission remains the same: to accelerate the realisation of social and economic rights for all through policy advice and services.

What unites our diverse global team, from economists and policy experts to software developers, is our passion to change people’s lives for the better. We deliver on this mission by providing bespoke, evidence-based advice on social policy challenges and solutions that are sustainable and tailored to specific contexts, enabling governments to take informed decisions based on clear objectives and robust analysis.
