Progressive Levelling Up

IPPR and IPPR North are undertaking a major project to set out how to upgrade levelling up and rebalance power, wealth, and opportunity between and within our regions, with the voice of people at its centre.

The first phase of the project reported in September 2023 and drew on participatory work from across Hastings, Stoke-on-Trent, and Redcar, as well wider conversations with citizens, leaders and experts from across the UK.

If you would like to get in touch about our ongoing work in this area or are interested in becoming part of it, please contact Zoë Billingham at
