Economic insights and social impacts toolkits

Interactive toolkits designed to increase understanding of the links between transport and social impacts or transport and economic growth.



These interactive toolkits are designed to help people understand the ways in which transport can help contribute towards 2 important outcomes: sustainable economic growth and positive social impacts.

The economic insights toolkit helps you better understand the ways in which transport can affect and interact with economic growth.

The social impacts toolkit is designed to increase awareness and understanding of the social impacts of transport and links to wellbeing.

Social impacts and economic growth are 2 central considerations for transport, and these toolkits should help build understanding of the way we can influence them through transport policy and interventions.

These toolkits contain examples of best practice and are supplementary to existing Department for Transport guidance.
