SQW has a long-standing track record in undertaking robust assessments of the socio-economic impacts of organisations, projects, events and assets including visitor attractions, commercial or residential developments and other investments.

The advice we offer delivers sounder investment decisions, better anticipation of results and, during and after the event, an improved understanding of the difference that has been made. We also work widely in assessing the effects of closures and re-locations of major employment sites, providing evidence to local and national stakeholders to help mitigate and manage any adverse impact.Impact_-_SQW.jpgIncreasingly, as well as understanding economic effects - on jobs, economic performance and sector development - our impact assessment work has focused on the wider social and community effects of interventions such as social inclusion, skills and access to services.
