New Fabian Society research finds the British public backs higher benefits for 4.6 million families.
Following the pandemic, our latest study of public attitudes to social security reveals a groundswell of support for increasing benefit payments, including raising benefits for three quarters of households who will receive universal credit.
The major citizens’ jury and national poll demonstrated strong public support for increasing benefits for disabled people, carers of disabled people, young people aged 18 to 24, and lone parents who are in work or looking after young children.
Going with the Grain presents these new findings alongside detailed plans for improving social security, designed to go with the grain of public opinion.
