The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has published a report ‘How do cities lead an inclusive growth agenda?’

Inclusive growth is a major issue in the UK and internationally. This research reviews evidence from international cities that have implemented an inclusive growth agenda to ensure that economic prosperity in their region benefits all.

  • Three key priorities are: paying greater attention to the demand side of the labour market, de-risking transitions into and within employment and building connectivity to enable individuals and areas to access growth opportunities.
