We use policy and research to support our three core aims:

  • Improving people’s prospects
  • Creating better places
  • Promoting greener living and working

Many of our reports come directly from the learning generated by our projects and programmes. We also commission and carry out original research to add to the evidence base both for our work and to share with policy makers in a position to change things for the better.

New report: Youth in a changing climate

The Youth in a Changing Climate report is based on what young people have told us about their views on climate change, hopes for a low carbon future, and how they want to be involved in the decisions that are made along the way.
