Proudly independent, The Public Purse’s research, analysis and policy development aims to open up opportunities, power, prosperity and sustainability for everyone.

Our research focuses on the big governance challenges and finding new ways to help government improve, rethink and sometimes see things differently. It also provides a range of opportunities to help ministers, senior civil servants and their teams to govern and lead more effectively.

We aim to influence policy in the present and reinvent progressive politics in the future. We offer new ideas and proposals on how best to confront these challenges and opportunities from the near to the long term.

Our research is wide ranging and covers the economy, work, skills, transport, democracy, the environment, education, energy, migration and healthcare among many other areas.
