Making the UK fairer: Where we live
PwC have been investigating the topic of fairness in UK society in its Future of Government programme, which is based on a major national survey conducted during the summer 2019. This report builds on the themes of fairness and work explored in previous reports by PwC, providing further insight on the disparities that exist between people living in different places.
The research shows that where people live has a big impact on their view of fairness in UK society. Everyone wants to live in a place they’re proud of, be part of a community they feel connected to, and feel that their voice is heard. The report makes it clear that the government can’t close the opportunity gap by itself. Instead, local public services leaders, business and community groups need to help to bring people together and create liveable places where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
