Dr Paul Sissons, with colleagues from The Work Foundation and the Policy Studies Institute, launched a report examining the links between employment, pay and poverty. Funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the report assesses a range of employment interventions and their potential to support poverty reduction in the UK. The aims of the research were (i) to review the evidence on the links between employment, pay and poverty in the UK and to examine how this compares to other countries (ii) to review evidence on the impact of employment-related policy and practice interventions to address poverty (iii) to identify gaps in the evidence base; and (iv) to identify the policy and practice implications of the evidence. The report was launched in July 2014.
