JRF - RSA Inclusive Growth Commission: Time for mayors, city leaders and Government to ensure everyone benefits from growth
Chief Executive Campbell Robb of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation responded to the RSA Inclusive Growth Commission
“We welcome this powerful and timely report, which sets out a clear and compelling roadmap to delivering more inclusive growth – economic growth that benefits everyone.
“It shows that city leaders do not have to wait for permission to put reducing poverty at the heart of their economic strategies, starting with metro mayor elections in May.
“But the Government must play its part too to deliver an economy that works for everyone, backing up its devolution deals with the powers and budgets to deliver more and better jobs.
“Brexit has put the spotlight on our worst-off communities. Now city leaders and the Government must use this opportunity to reinvigorate their prospects as part of a post-Brexit plan.”
