Briefing paper: from poverty to flourishing - bringing psychology into action on poverty

09 July 2020

The BPS is seeking to provide insight into the psychological impact of poverty and the ways in which psychological research can help to effectively reduce it.

Effective solutions exist, so the interventions we recommend are unlikely to be unique. But by helping to deepen policy-makers’ understanding of the psychological underpinnings of why they work, we hope to strengthen the case for implementing these interventions.

The briefing paper(s) presented here set out our intended approach to our campaign and the way in which psychology can help inform a more effective approach to developing policy that will tackle poverty.
