What Do People Want From Public Services?


This research briefing summarises and provides some analysis of key results from an ICM online poll commissioned by the Trust and conducted between 7-9th January 2015 . Our data shows that people want more control over the public services that they receive and that 32% of people could be persuaded to vote for a political party that offers them more control over their public services.

Our results demonstrate that there is an appetite for more enabling forms of government. To find out how governments can do this successfully you can download our Route Map to an Enabling State.
