As we enter the pandemic endgame, with the country adapting to living with Covid, rather than feeling optimistic, citizens are gloomy about the future. As 2021 drew to a close, half of Britons felt the country was going in the wrong direction. In our annual State of the State report, published in November, just 13 per cent of people thought inequalities between regions would improve over the next few years, while 39 per cent thought the damage from carbon emissions would get worse.
With both public services and the public finances under severe strain, a cost-of-living crisis, and a clear route to Net Zero yet to be defined, there is no doubt that bold thinking is needed. It is essential that evidence-based policies are developed that will improve people’s lives, from creating good jobs, to ensuring timely access to high-quality public services, to building safe communities.
Reform is delighted to host this roundtable, led by Anneliese Dodds MP, to discuss the policies that will be needed to address these issues.
The roundtable will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
