This report from UK think tank the Centre for Progressive Policy looks at prioritising social investment in education, health and local communities.

CPP and NRG have produced a new research paper which makes detailed policy suggestions to deliver levelling up and create opportunities for all. The report calls on the Government to prioritise social investment in education, health, and local communities to truly level up the North. The paper highlights challenges in Red Wall communities in terms of weekly earnings, healthy life expectancy, and educational attainment. CPP and NRG demand the Government to use the upcoming Levelling Up White Paper and Autumn Spending Review to deliver benefits for disadvantaged communities across the whole country.
