Welcome to the Institute of Government & Public Policy

Making governance and public policy making more inclusive.

Learn about the Institute of Government & Public Policy (IGPP), what we do, and how you can get involved. 

What is the Institute of Government & Public Policy? 

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. 

What does the Institute of Government & Public Policy do?

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.  

Events, conferences and training courses 

The Institute works closely with partners and collaborators to host a diverse range of events, conferences and training courses for community members. Our events are known for their high level of professionalism, expertise and depth, and provide leaders from across a range of sectors with insight, inspiration and networking opportunities.
