About us

Welcome to The New Britain Project, an independent progressive think tank bridging the gap between politics, policy and practice. 

Facing urgent challenges, Britain risks decline without embracing workable solutions that acknowledge the task's scale and constraints. 

A Britain That's Got Your Back

We are launching a comprehensive programme centred around three core themes: rewiring the economy, renewing the social contract, and investing in young people.

Through rigorous research, practical insights, and public outreach, the New Britain Project aims to become an invaluable resource for government policymakers and front line decision-makers.

Our mission is clear: to provide the tools and knowledge needed to build a Britain that's got your back – a Britain that works for every citizen, leaving no place behind.

Keir Starmer recognised the need for a total overhaul of the Labour Party to win back an opportunity to be listened to by the voters who turned away. It will take the same boldness to usher in the “decade of national renewal” he talks of. And the painstaking work in preparing for that change must begin now.

A new perspective

Diversity of thought is crucial to successful policy-making. 

We believe there needs to be more women, and frontline voices with power and influence, in the rooms where decisions are made.

We also hold that it’s not solely a crisis of ideas; history has shown us that even the most well intentioned policy solutions often fail when faced with the complexities of real-world execution. 


What works on paper does not always work in real life.

That's why, together, we aim to understand the root causes of past policy failures and provide practical insights to drive successful change in the months and years ahead.



Our Broken Britain poll is one of the most comprehensive studies undertaken into the current depth of malaise among the British public.



Four years after the Conservative Party promised to "level up" Britain's forgotten communities, our Broken Britain Index paints a stark picture of deepening regional inequalities.
