Work with us

IPPR’s research and ideas have been helping to shape public policy and bring about change for more than 20 years. Over that time we have led thinking on areas as diverse as devolution, elected mayors, family-friendly working, asset-based welfare, and public service reform. The Commission on Social Justice and the Commission on National Security in the 21st Century are among the high-profile initiatives which have had a defining influence on policy in the UK. We are currently working on areas such as increasing growth and prosperity, creating a greener and more balanced economy, and developing a progressive approach to migration and development.

Our work has exceptional impact and influence. We publish more than 50 reports each year, and our website is visited nearly a million times annually, generating around 300,000 report downloads. IPPR experts regularly appear on national and international television and radio, as well as in the main print and online media. In all, we achieve around 5,000 media hits each year.

IPPR is an independent registered charity and we can only carry out our important and influential research and events programme because of the support we get from funders and sponsors, which include trusts, foundations, businesses, unions, voluntary organisations, local government and national government departments.

Every year, we publish our annual report, which outlines how our funds are raised and spent.

There are two main ways organisations can work with IPPR:

Our events programme brings high-profile figures and the brightest minds to a wide range of audiences. Recent speakers have included the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, the work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith and former foreign secretary David Miliband.
