On the seventieth anniversary of the Beveridge report, this short briefing sets out five goals for a new social settlement, and puts forward eight steps that should be taken to make the welfare state more socially just and sustainable. The Beveridge report was designed to deal with extreme social conditions. Time has moved on, but the challenges we face are no less urgent, argues the author of this briefing. A new social settlement that is fit for the 21st century must combine the strengths of the post war model with new perspectives and priorities.
