As local authorities continue to face difficult decisions amid ongoing austerity measures, a research team from the University of Glasgow has worked with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to produce a Social Impact Tool to help councils assess the impact of cuts on services and the public, particularly on poorer groups of service users.

Annette Hastings from University of Glasgow delivered this presentation The Cost of the Cuts: a social impact tool (PDF) at a seminar in Glasgow on 2nd December 2015.
