The Enabling State: Where are we now? Review of policy developments 2013-2018 Summary Report
Author: Jennifer Wallace, Jenny Brotchie and Hannah Ormston
An Enabling State is one that seeks to address stubborn inequalities of outcome and gives people and communities more control over the public services they receive to improve their own wellbeing.
Summarising the evidence from across the four UK jurisdictions and over 180 sources, our new report, The Enabling State: Where are we now? provides a review of participative, outcomes-based, joined up policy making since 2013 and details what each shift has entailed.
Our assessment found that no jurisdiction of the UK is delivering on all of these shifts, but that overall Scotland and Wales have seen more development over the past five years than England and Northern Ireland.
