ICF International's research, evaluation, technical, and advisory services support the development and implementation of public policy and programmes in the UK. We work across the spectrum of social, economic, and environmental policy areas to help organisations in the UK meet their objectives, maximise benefits, and reduce costs.



ICF's full-service solutions in the UK include assisting with the design, development, delivery, and evaluation of interventions; helping clients appraise investments; and developing systems to manage programme performance and track impact. Our expertise includes education, employment and skills, health and social care, environment, climate, and energy. We also have supported the UK aviation industry from a London office for more than 25 years.

The Strength of History

ICF is one of the largest consultancies for public policy research, evaluation, and implementation support. Our rapidly growing operations have been serving clients in the UK for nearly 40 years.

During this time, our teams have worked with UK government departments and agencies at all levels, devolved administrations, industry associations, private-sector companies, charities, and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs). This experience gives us the ability to appraise the relevance and application of policies and programmes with a detailed understanding of the UK context.

The Power of Global Resources

With our ability to build and manage multi-disciplinary teams, ICF also delivers clients the advantage of a global perspective. Full integration of UK staff into ICF's operations—with many professionals working throughout Europe as well as in the UK—enables us to provide comparative analyses of problems and policies across countries and best practice examples, techniques, and technologies from around the world.

ICF's international resources are supplemented by a strong network of business partners offering complementary services in the UK and beyond.
