OUR PEOPLE

The New Economics Foundation has a core team of specialist consultants, associates and experts but we also pull together expert teams from across the wider organisation.

On each and every project, we bring together a unique combination of expertise and experience of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, both from within the UK and globally.

If you are not sure who to contact about a consultancy or training project, or have a general research enquiry, please see the contacts page for a link. 


We work with a number of associates on a regular basis – please see the Associates page for details.

For more details about each person, click on their image or name below. For information on the wider New Economics Foundation team please visit the main website.

NB: Many of us are working remotely at least some of the week so please contact us by email in the first instance.

New Economics Foundation

NEF aims to create a new economy that works for people and within environmental limits. We are guided by three missions:

A new social settlement
To ensure people are paid well, have more time off to spend with their families, and have access to the things we all need for a decent life.

A Green New Deal
A plan for government-led investment to reduce the carbon we emit and boost nature, while creating a new generation of jobs.

The democratic economy
To devolve state power and transform ownership of the economy to give everyone an equal stake in the places where we live and work.
