Large parts of our economy are characterised by insecurity. Our Insecure Work strand aims to deliver new evidence and ideas to help organisations, policymakers and workers.
The Work Foundation is a leading think tank for improving working lives in the UK. We believe everyone should have access to secure, rewarding and high-quality work and deliver rigorous applied research to tackle structural inequalities in the labour market and improve working lives across the UK.
