Company: Policy in Practice

Job title: Director

Bio:

Deven Ghelani is a thought leader in welfare reform. He worked on Universal Credit since its inception and has written extensively on welfare policy. Deven set up Policy in Practice, a social policy, software and consulting business, to simplify the delivery of welfare policy on the frontline. He believes the welfare system can work better and help people towards greater independence. Policy in Practice simplifies the welfare system by showing people how government policy affects them so they can make informed decisions about their lives. On a local level they show councils how each individual household is affected by all policy changes, now and in the future. The team also talks to government on a national level to influence policy.
