Towards the manifestos: What’s the agenda for fixing poverty and tackling inequality?

Our polling shows broad public support for a wide range of potential solutions to poverty and inequalities, across seven areas (employment, tax, social security, housing, health, education and equalities). 

While there are important differences of opinion about some policies between respondents based on their life stage, politics or broader mindset (whether they put more emphasis on individual actions or structural factors in determining life outcomes), the polling results in general point to relatively consistent views across generations and political divides, with plenty of potential for common ground.

The results of the polling appear in a report launched at a conference in the House of Commons on 12 July 2023, convened by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Inclusive Growth, the Policy Institute at King’s College London and the Fairness Foundation.
