Advisory and Academics groups

The Commission has benefited from the support, insights and critique of a wide range of individuals and organisations. These include a group of around 20 poverty experts and leading academics that have been invaluable in helping the Technical Team and Secretariat navigate the existing evidence and develop the detailed methodology.

A group of Advisors including John Pullinger, the National Statistician, Baroness Hollis and Fraser Nelson, and the support and critique of officials in organisations including the ONS and the Department for Work and Pensions, have also been invaluable to the Commission’s work.

The Commission has also engaged with a wider range of stakeholders, including parliamentarians, policymakers in devolved administrations and a wide range of groups and individuals who research poverty and/or work with those in poverty. Their input has been invaluable in taking the Commission’s work forward.
