In anticipation of the Government’s publishing of the Levelling Up White Paper later this year, Ipsos MORI is following a small group of people to better understand what it means to ‘level up’ among different communities across the UK. They are keeping an app diary for us so we can understand what 'levelling up' means in practice for them and the area in which they live. What will success look like and do they feel positive about the future? Stay tuned as we unpick the answers to some of these questions in the coming days and weeks.
The Levelling Up Diaries
- The State of the State 2021: This report, now in its ninth year, brings together Deloitte and Reform to take an annual snapshot of the UK’s public sector
- Levelling Up: Grace Jacobs looks at public opinion on the north/south divide and asks - are we more uneven then ever?
- Ipsos MORI/NLGN/PwC 2015 Survey: Public knows little about the 'devolution revolution' - but supports local decision-making
- Devolution Revolution: In 2015 local government got more localism and devolution. Matthew Bristow in the Ipsos MORI Almanac looks at the implications.
- Increase in awareness of Government's 'Levelling Up' strategy: Awareness has increased but many remain uninformed on the Government's plans for levelling up
- The public's expectations for levelling up: At the end of July, we asked the UK general public whether the levelling up agenda will have a significant impact on their local area and only 14% agreed.
- The Levelling Up Diaries Part 2: The Conservative Party Conference took place in October, and we recontacted our video diary participants to ask them what they thought of the Government’s commentary around Levelling up.
