Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


This work was funded by the Wellcome Trust as part of a project entitled Assessing the prospective impacts of Universal Basic Income (UBI) on anxiety and depression among 14-24-year-olds. This serves as a pilot study for our much broader, long-term examination of the role of Universal Basic Income as a public health measure.

The project commenced in August 2021 and has led to a number of articles either published or under review and two
reports published by Compass. This publication serves as an interim report summarising findings to date in advance
of the end of project RSA report, which will be launched in September 2022.
