As the UK’s political landscape goes through a significant period of change, divisions within British society have become more apparent and disparities more keenly felt. Funding and finance for social policy and initiatives following a period of austerity in the UK are important issues for discussion. This, therefore, marks an ideal time for reflection and reprioritisation to devise policy and interventions in close collaboration with ALBs, private, non-profit and academic sectors.
The WIG event series will facilitate communication and collaboration across public, private and not-for-profit sectors to help identify solutions for some of the UK’s most pressing societal concerns. WIG aims to ensure that the UK government’s social policies are not developed in siloes by engaging key stakeholders across departments and arm’s length bodies. WIG will create an environment for peer learning and constructive dialogue between key stakeholders to support improvements to public services and engender positive societal impacts.
