A Review Of Policy And Evidence Across The UK And Ireland

 

As austerity continues to affect public spending, governments are struggling with the implications of ageing populations and increased demand.   The Trust argues that a new model of public services, based on a new relationship with citizens and communities, is required.  Based on almost 200 research reports, policy analysis papers and government documents, the review highlights the shift from the welfare state to the enabling state.
