The voluntary and charity sectors play important roles in providing services for those most in need in our society and advocating on their behalf. Through our pro bono work we also aim to make a strong positive contribution to those who are in greater need. We work with partners on a wide range of causes both in the UK and internationally and add new partners every year.
We make the best use of economics to ensure our pro bono work has as much impact as any other project. We have set up a dedicated pool of days solely for pro bono projects to ensure it remains a priority at Frontier. We encourage all members of Frontier’s team to get involved, from our senior Directors to our new analysts.
We help charities by doing what we do best – using economic analysis to help them evaluate the social impact of their services and articulate the wider benefits of their actions. We find that this expertise is often particularly valuable in the charity and voluntary sectors. Please browse our pages on the left to find out more about how we have added value for charities in the past:

The terrible human cost of acid attacks is well-known, but what is less clear is the economic cost to UK society. Frontier has produced an economic impact assessment of acid attacks in the UK for Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI), taking wider societal costs into consideration, including costs to the criminal justice system, the NHS, and the victims themselves.
Frontier reaffirms its support of the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption. Our latest communication of progress describes our actions to continually improve the integration of the UNGC and its principles into our business strategy, culture and daily operations.
