New charity Pro Bono Economics offers advice from economists

Skills brokerage is the brainchild of New Philanthropy Capital's Martin Brookes and Andy Haldane of the Bank of England

A charity that will give third sector organisations access to free expert help from economists and help them measure results and impact was launched yesterday.

Pro Bono Economics has been set up by economists Martin Brookes, chief executive of New Philanthropy Capital, and Andy Haldane, executive director, financial stability, at the Bank of England.

Fifty economists have already agreed to provide services for charities on short and medium-term projects in areas such as evaluating the work they do and determining the best ways of achieving their goals.

Pro Bono Economics will act as a broker and match economists to suitable charities.
