The Role of the State

The Social Guarantee re-imagines the role of the state. Nationally and locally, it provides some services directly, where that’s appropriate. Otherwise, it has four essential functions. 

1

To guarantee equality of access, between and within localities

2

To set and enforce ethical and practical standards

3

To collect and invest funds, distributing them to ensure inclusion and fairness across the country

4

To support services anchored in local communities and coordinate activities across different areas of need – for best results all round
