Exploring a Future Welfare State

A Pilot Survey on the Basic Income

The Basic Income or Citizens Income is the idea that every adult citizen of a country will receive a guaranteed level of support, regardless of their income.

A meeting was hosted by Sheffield Equality Group on the possible actions around the current state of welfare reform. One proposal, building on the work of The Centre for Welfare Reform, was made to carry out a survey that would act to 'myth-bust' around the current state of the welfare system as well as gather information on perceptions of the basic income.

This report sets out the findings of that survey.
