We have experienced systems whereby the structure of incentives makes it seem more attractive for people to stay on welfare. This is why we actively contribute to the ‘better off in work’ debate.
We challenge the notion that there is a dichotomy between earning and learning. This is why we actively contribute to discussion about the skills agenda.
We use our international experience to form opinions and provide recommendations on procurement practices, openly advocating larger contracts that have clear policy objectives, linked to measurable performance indicators, outcome based funding, and a strong audit regime.
We have developed predictive measures of the relationship between the time it takes to place someone in a job and the likely sustainability of that job. And we are testing methods of measuring distance travelled.
We believe in choice and voice in welfare reform; in giving the people who benefit from a service the ability to actively participate in the design of that service.
We have sponsored research in partnership with the Young Foundation which led to the establishment of the Resilience Foundation and the Foundation’s Studio Schools.
Our aim is to broaden our level of social entrepreneurship. One of our core capabilities is to identify social problems that need to be solved, co-create solutions with policy makers and operationalise these solutions. Our responses are creative, productive and bold, and based on international best practice and achieving the policy objectives of partners. Our vision is to use this capability to broaden our commitment to ‘people flourishing’.
