The Minimum Income Standard in the pandemic and beyond: practical applications


This event, hosted by UK think tank the Joseph Rowntree Foundation will discuss the latest MIS findings and how the research is being applied in practice. 

The Minimum Income Standard (MIS) shows us what households need for an acceptable minimum standard of living and has become an important reference point in analysis of public policy and in applied social practice.

Since its launch in 2008, MIS has been updated annually to reflect changes in costs and in living patterns. In 2021, new research is starting to reflect on the impact of Covid on MIS.

Join this timely webinar to hear about the latest MIS findings and about how the research is being applied in practice. The research team will present the latest research on MIS and Covid, and other speakers will give examples of how MIS is being applied by charities, in the legal world and in local government. These practical examples will show the potential of MIS to be used in a range of ways in the future to support decent living standards in the post-Covid era.
