Helping to help the most disadvantaged


The Centre for Public Innovation exists to help public and voluntary organisations improve the lives of their clients.

We are proud to be a Community Interest Company, allying entrepreneurialism with a strong value base. 

We believe in developing strong relationships with our clients, helping them to improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the UK. We don’t believe in transactional relationships and seek to develop deep partnerships with everyone we work with. 

We aim to help the most disadvantaged by providing high quality research, service reviews, commissioning support and training and we have a proven record in working with the public sector over 20 years.

We are always happy to talk to you about issues facing your organisations and your clients and are always available for a no obligation chat.

Areas of Practice

criminal justice

CPI has worked across all elements of the criminal justice system including prisons, police, courts, probation and youth offending. Our clients have included police forces, the Home Office, Police and Crime Commissioners and Community Safety Partnerships.

mental health

We have delivered projects addressing the needs of mental health clients across the entire spectrum of need from those with common mental health conditions to those with a severe and enduring condition. Our work has often explored the mental health of those in substance misuse treatment or the criminal justice system.


We have worked with victims (including the most vulnerable eg victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault) and providers of victims’ services assisting commissioners in assessing the appropriate levels of service provisioning ensuring value for money.

CPI has extensive experience of working with vulnerable young people. Our work includes projects delivered in relation to young people’s mental health, young offenders and young victims of crime.

substance misuse

CPI has an extensive track-record of working in the drug and alcohol treatment with both commissioners and providers. We understand all elements of the treatment system and its inter-relationship with the criminal justice system.

commissioning support

CPI has a detailed understanding of commissioning and has delivered projects across all elements of the commissioning cycle. We have worked with both commissioners and providers of commissioned services meaning that we have unique insight into commissioning from the perspective of all parties.
