  • Economic democracy
  • Health & wellbeing

The combined cost of living, labour market and healthcare crises present an opportunity for radical structural change within our economic and social systems. Is there scope for the introduction of a universal basic income as a transformative public health intervention?

As part of an academic partnership, funded by Wellcome, the RSA is exploring the potential for a UBI, how it could work in practice and what its impacts might be. The research brings together new analysis which shows that even a fiscally neutral UBI could have a significant effect in reducing poverty and insecurity and bring health benefits to those benefiting from the scheme.  

Speakers to include report authors Matthew Johnson, Northumbria University and Hannah Webster, RSA; and guest speakers Ruth Lister CBE and Professor Guy Standing.

The event marks the launch of a new RSA report exploring the health and wellbeing impacts of a universal basic income. Read our interim report on a UBI and mental health
