The Westminster Policy Institute is a consultancy based in London, set up by former special adviser to David Cameron, Sean Worth in October 2014.

It was described as a cross between a "think-tank and a research institute" in PR Week.[1]

Westminster Policy Institute claim they can help 'clients engage with policymakers on the issues critical to their success.'[2] They also offer clients 'reputation management' and 'political insight'.
