You are invited to attend the launch of Bright Blue’s final and major report from our multi-year project on the future of social security, entitled ‘Building up: The future of social security‘. This final report examines the adequacy, accessibility and fairness of the social security system for working-aged adults before, during and at the end of the pandemic, before offering three new policies to strengthen social security in this country.

Our project on the future of social security has published a series of analysis pieces over the past two years and has been steered by a high-profile, cross-party, cross-sector commission.
