The New Social Covenant

I am the co-chair, with Miriam Cates MP, of a new project called the New Social Covenant Unit. Its purpose is to develop proposals to strengthen families, communities and the nation. 

The project builds on the report I wrote for the Prime Minister last year on how to sustain the community spirit we have seen through the pandemic. That report, called 'Levelling Up Our Communities: proposals for a new social covenant', is attached below.
