Publication Report Public services New Skills at Work Equality Population and demographics Future Welfare State IPPR

Our Future Welfare State Programme looks to understand the big shifts that will transform our country in the decades of disruption to come and how we can ‘future-proof’ our welfare state to manage them - creating a prosperous and just society.

The programme was launched in May 2020 and will publish new research on health, care, skills, social security and community into 2021. It is supported by an expert advisory panel and group of frontline charities.
