PPL is a social enterprise that exists to promote better health, wellbeing and economic outcomes across the UK working with individuals, communities and the organisations that support them. We are one of the Financial Times leading management consultancies in the UK, winner of multiple awards from both the consulting industry and in the sectors we operate. We do this through applying the best of current and emerging thinking in the fields of management science, analytics, organisational development and management consultancy to help people achieve better outcomes in life and to deliver social value. We have spent the past decade supporting systems and communities throughout the UK to co-design better services, and co-deliver better outcomes. Since becoming independent from the public sector in 2007, we have worked in partnership with health commissioners and providers, local authorities, central government, the voluntary and community sector, and other social enterprises to change the way local services are delivered.
