Resolution Foundation

The Resolution Foundation is an independent think-tank focused on improving the living standards for those on low to middle incomes. There are eight million low to middle income families in the UK, including twelve million adults and nearly seven million children.

We work across a wide range of economic and social policy, combining our core purpose with a commitment to analytical rigour and effective policy action. The Foundation’s established work programme includes work on incomes and inequality; jobs, skills and pay; housing, wealth and debt; tax and welfare; public finances and the economy.

The Foundation is also embarking on a new series of work programmes to reflect the scale of the economic and social challenges facing the country as it seeks broadly based economic growth.

Its new Macroeconomic Policy Unit, launched in 2019, focuses on analysis of and improvements to the UK’s macro policy framework, including the role of monetary and fiscal policy.

The Foundation has also established a new Intergenerational Centre, overseen by Lord David Willetts, to build on the work of its recent Intergenerational Commission. The Centre will provide a home for intergenerational research and policy analysis, with the support of the Nuffield Foundation.
