Pro Bono Economics helps charities and social enterprises understand the costs and improve the impact of their work. We do this by matching highly skilled economist volunteers with charities that need this expertise and then guiding the work and ensuring a high quality output.

After the financial crash in 2008, Pro Bono Economics co-founders Martin Brookes (now CEO of London Plus) and Andy Haldane (Chief Economist at the Bank of England) wanted to demonstrate how economists could use their skills to help charities and consequently re-establish public trust and respect in the discipline of economics.
