Securing the future for Britain’s high streets and town centres

Britain’s town centres and high streets are often at the heart of people’s sense of place and local identity.

Speakers:

Britain’s town centres and high streets are often at the heart of people’s sense of place and local identity. Changes in global and local economies have put this under pressure, with 1 in 12 shops having closed in England and Wales in the last 5 years. With the radical global shift in how we use and relate to our local resources, it may be time to empower local authorities and communities to deliver a high street revolution.

Is it time for social care to be funded like the NHS?

In contrast to the health service, the current system of social care has proved unworkable, unsustainable and unfair.

Speakers:

In contrast to the health service, the current system of social care has proved unworkable, unsustainable and unfair. Individuals face a lottery that means if they face one type of health condition, the costs are covered in full by the NHS. If it’s another type – dementia, for example – they can face ruinous costs, particularly if they are homeowners. Is it time for what has been called ‘the logical completion of the welfare state’?

How to unleash growth in the North

While the cities of the North are individually strong, collectively they could be made stronger.

Speakers:

There is no escaping the fact that London dominates the UK economy. While the cities of the North are individually strong, collectively they could be made stronger. The whole is less than the sum of its parts. How can we change this? What investment is needed to create the liveability and the connections that the North needs to grow and thrive?
