Learn about the Institute of Government & Public Policy (IGPP), what we do, and how you can get involved.
IGPP is an independent organisation with the goals of making governance and policy-making more inclusive and open to a broad coalition of stakeholders.
We believe that the most positive and productive outcomes are achieved through enhancing knowledge, disseminating excellence, collaboration, and ongoing discussions. Through doing each of these, IGPP aspires to be the most comprehensive, reliable, and accurate source of political and public policy intelligence and education in the UK.
The Institute works to make government and public policy more effective by informing, educating, and facilitating collaboration between members, partners and contributors across six key communities: education, health & social care, housing, construction & built environment, criminal justice & safer communities, and central & local government.
Across these communities, we focus on several themes: digital & technology, people & leadership, policy, finance & procurement, and systems & infrastructure.
IGPP’s key activities support our communities and stakeholders through professional development, peer to peer support, policy & influence, and research & improvement. Find out more about what each of these includes here.

Research papers, reports and resources
IGPP works with a selection of partners and contributors to collate and produce various public policy research papers, reports and resources. These explore a range of themes and topics across our supported communities.
