Social Impacts Task Force


An update on the recent work of the Social Impacts Task Force (SITF).

The Social Impacts Task Force was set up in August 2010 with the aim of developing a cross-government approach to understanding social impacts, and embedding consideration of such impacts in policymaking. Members of the taskforce are analysts from across Whitehall and the devolved administrations with expertise and experience in this area, and it meets on a quarterly basis.
