RSA Research: responding to COVID-19 

'Respond at scale, build bridges to the future'

The following ideas capture emergent thinking from the RSA Research and Impact team on ways the UK should respond to the coronavirus and build bridges for the future.

  • Get cash to people now and build the social contract of  the future - Get cash to people now including a Basic Income for the self employed, agency and gig workers. A basis for a new social contract.
  • A fiscal stimulus for community - Support civil society infrastructure now and in the future aligned to local services and needs.
  • Establish a new 'schools plus' education service - Support learning environments in school and at home through investment, support and voluntarism. Narrow stark educational inequalities.
  • Support agility in health, care and neighbourhood services - Use technology, new management practices to support communities and tap into the enormous surge in volunteering that we are witnessing.
  • A 'beyond GDP' stimulus - As we move into recovery phase concentrate stimulus on green and socially good growth. Let's use the recovery when it comes to chart a different course.
