The future of government

Practical steps to create a fair and inclusive future

Join the debate #futureofgov

With the UK in the process of leaving the European Union, there is an opportunity for the country to focus on what kind of society we want to live in. We are optimistic, looking to the future and thinking big. We're listening to others and considering what's needed to build stronger communities, rethink public services and secure a future for the UK which is based on fairness and regional balance.

Everyday we see the difference the public sector has to people's lives. The Government's next Spending Review has the potential to drive change; to improve outcomes for citizens and deliver value for money. What does a fairer future society look like? And how can government transformation meet the changes that will face post-Brexit UK? Could this transformation put citizens and communities at the centre and build a fairer country that works for everyone?

Drawing on an expert steering group and convening views across business, the public sector and civil society, PwC will explore these questions in our 2019 research programme.

How can government transform for a fairer future for the UK?

Where we live
What’s the role of place in unlocking growth and transforming public services?

How we work
How can government ensure workforce changes give the UK a fairer future?

How we access services
What’s needed to deliver future public services enabled by digital?

Our approach is to listen

Scoping

How is fairness currently defined?

  • We’ll test and shape our thinking with our external Steering Group and our clients and networks across government and the public sector.
  • We’ll collaborate with organisations such as the Institute for Government to convene thinking on the Spending Review 2019.
  • We’ll review existing research on fairness to inform the questions we ask the public.

Public Consultation

What does fairness mean to the public?

  • Together with Opinium, we are using innovative qualitative and quantitative research methodologies to develop an understanding of the citizen’s view of the society we want after EU exit and what's needed from government to facilitate a fairer future for the UK.
  • The Pop-up Community brings together a nationally representative group of 20 members of the public in an immersive online qualitative study that brings the views of the public to life.
  • Following the deliberative study, Opinium will conduct a major quantitative study to understand the motivational landscape of the UK, building a comprehensive map of what a fair UK represents to the public.

Review of data

What does the public’s views mean for the questions we are trying to answer?

  • Having understood the public’s vision and priorities for the UK, we will collaborate and convene groups to draw implications for the places we live in, how we work and what services we access.
