Our research programmes

Covid Impact Assessment Unit

Our Covid Impact Assessment Unit builds on our metrics expertise and understanding of the holistic nature of prosperity to highlight the potential impact of policy decisions made in response to the ongoing pandemic.

UK Poverty Unit

Our UK Poverty Unit uses our poverty policy simulator to hold Government to account for the impact of policies on the most disadvantaged

Race Equality Commission

Building on the data and analysis available in the Government’s 2017 Race Disparity Audit, the Commission will explore why racial disparity exists in the UK and identify the changes that would make a tangible difference to people’s lives and lead to a lived experience of racial equality.

Centre for UK Prosperity

Our Centre for UK Prosperity is dedicated to creating the pathways from poverty to prosperity for England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Courage in Journalism

The Courage in Journalism Award was created to highlight the dangers faced by journalists around the world, and is presented posthumously to a journalist whose death in the past year was a direct result of their work.
