The Resolution Trust acts as catalyst, convenor and sponsor of work with a range of partners to promote shared growth and reforms that distribute power more widely across society. It oversees the not-for-profit work of the Resolution Group.
The Resolution Trust takes a specific interest in long-term problems that are often viewed as intractable due to the short-term nature of the political cycle. The approach taken is non-partisan, evidence-based and draws on international experience.
Its main areas of current work include support for:
Resolution Foundation – the leading UK economic and social policy think-tank that seeks to improve the living standards of those on low to middle incomes.
Prospect magazine – the UK’s leading magazine of ideas (owned by Resolution Trust).
WorkerTech – a partnership established with Bethnal Green Ventures that develops innovative ideas using tech to support the low-wage workforce.
Employment, Equity and Growth programme at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, Oxford University – this undertakes research into the economic theory, policies and institutional changes required for more inclusive growth.
