How is life looking for the “silent majority” and the most disadvantaged in our society, as we enter the 2020s? We used to talk of people living on the margins of society but have those margins widened? In an age of unprecedented connectivity, where everyone with a phone has a voice, why are so many voices seemingly going unheard or simply ignored? Is there a gap in our politics which the public are waiting for populist politicians to fill?

At this briefing, Guy will present findings from NatCen’s first social trends report Progress and Popularity: Facing the Disillusioned in a New Decade. Drawing on the full range of sources, the report offers a window into people’s lives for policymakers and politicians alike, in particular those of the more disadvantaged in our society.

A guest speaker will be invited to respond to the findings.

Attendees will hear Guy’s insights on the report and the opportunities and challenges that the findings pose for our politicians.

Sign up for the event.
