This report from UK think tank Pro Bono Economics looks at two of the major challenges weighing heavily on the UK.

PBE’s pre-Autumn Statement briefing exploring two of the major challenges weighing heavily on the UK and the vital role the nation’s charities can play in meeting them, ahead of the Chancellor’s announcement. The briefing tracks the concerning economic stagnation of the past 15 years, which has left the average person £6,500-a-year worse off than they might have been in more normal times. Economic challenges are colliding with a deterioration in the nation’s health. It is vital that the Chancellor takes action to get to grips with these twin economic and health challenges and provides support to those most exposed. Resetting the government’s relationship with the charity sector, drawing on its expertise and encouraging genuine partnership alongside the private sector too, would be a smart move from Jeremy Hunt.
