Empowering young people through asset ownership
A NEW THINK TANK FOR A NEW GENERATION
MODERN PROBLEMS REQUIRE MODERN SOLUTIONS
With rising levels of personal debt, high living costs and insurmountable barriers to home ownership, young people are under significant financial strain. With ownership of assets a crucial facet of wealth creation, young people are increasingly turning toward radical alternatives. With a majority of young voters favouring socialism over capitalism, the very future of British economic liberalism is at stake. This ‘slide to the far left’ is not the result of youthful naivety, but of understandable disillusion with an economic system that they see as having failed them. The Institute of Youth Policy (IYP) was founded to address this balance.
We aim to enfranchise young people up and down the country by fostering as -- lifting thousands out of poverty whilst creating a happier and more prosperous society in the process.
Our research has found that economic well-being rests upon 'Five Pillars'. We design policies aimed at strengthening these pillars, and promote our ideas to politicians, the media and members of the public.
We are an independent, non-partisan organisation, funded exclusively by our supporters. Every donation we receive allows us to continue our vital advocacy on behalf of young people across the country.
