Profound demographic change and the transformation of welfare will underpin the domestic public policy debate for decades.

Reform brings considerable expertise and insight into these critical areas, currently administered by the UK’s largest public service department with around 19 million claimants and customers. Understanding these important public policy drivers will play a key role when addressing public service reform in health, care, housing, income and for intergenerational fairness issues.
