What will #budget2012 mean for UK poverty?

Gordon Hector

19 March 2012

This briefing draws on evidence from our research to show how potential policy decisions in the 2012 Budget would affect poor places and people in the UK.

It looks at six issues:

  • raising the income tax threshold;
  • tax credits, work incentives and poverty rates;
  • the 'mansion tax' and housing;
  • increasing housing supply;
  • older people; and
  • funding social care.
