Better Insight, Better Decisions, Better Delivery

OR is the use of scientific or mathematical methods to help organisations become more effective, and OR people apply their skills in business, government and academia.
Pro Bono OR was created to allow UK-based organisations in the third sector to benefit from OR consultancy at no cost. During its last eight years of operation, it has helped more than 120 charities, from tiny volunteer-only groups to household names. View some of our case studies here.
