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. 

To guarantee equality of access, between and within localities

To set and enforce ethical and practical standards

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

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