Regional inequality traps people in poverty in all parts of England, from Newcastle to Newham, along our coasts and in our countryside.
Our regions are interconnected, but right now that’s working against all of us and driving up poverty, both in our overheating capital and in our underperforming towns and cities.
This Commission has brought our regions together to set out a new, inclusive, ambitious agenda to rebalance the country and reduce poverty across all of England.
With speakers including Lisa Nandy MP (Shadow Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities), Nick Forbes (Chair of the commission, former leader of Newcastle City Council), and more to be announced
