Turning broad policy into meaningful change
These core aims include:
Given the number of priorities and available interventions, how can agreement be reached on what matters where and how we focus our activity to deliver meaningful change?
Eight months on from the release of the much-anticipated White Paper we set out to find the answer.
Building on our work with stakeholders at all levels of the process, from town centres to Whitehall, we explored whether there is broad agreement on priorities, how that may impact interventions and the lessons learned so far.
As the White Paper states, levelling up “is a programme of change that requires a fundamental shift in how central and local government, the private sector and civil society operate”. However, if this is to happen and be effective in stimulating and delivering change, then it must be a shared priority.
There has to be agreement between government and the businesses and communities they serve on what to invest time and money into.
This analysis provides layered views, offering insight to policy makers and politicians at both a national and a local level.
In partnership with the Institute for Government we ran events at the Labour and Conservative party conferences, to understand each party’s vision for levelling up.
You may be tasked with devolution, improving health and social care outcomes, or delivering major programmes. It all requires the right approach.
