Advisory and Academics groups

To ensure the Commission builds on and uses the best possible range of external evidence, it is developing a significant Advisory Group. The intention is to bring together the top thinkers across a wide range of policy areas, who can feed into the Commission’s thinking as it develops.

We already have close to 50 members of the Group, who are helping the Technical Team and Secretariat navigate the existing evidence and develop the detailed methodology.

A group of Advisors including Stephen Brien, Sir Hector Sants and Paul Johnson are also been invaluable to the Commission’s work.

The Commission is also engaging with a wider range of stakeholders, including parliamentarians, policymakers in devolved administrations and a wide range of groups and individuals who research poverty and/or work with those in poverty. Their input will be invaluable in taking the Commission’s work forward.
