Future of Britain
Britain needs a new plan. The Future of Britain demands a new era of invention and innovation. Yet the state is no longer fit for purpose, with people paying higher taxes for less effective public services. Incremental improvements won’t deliver the fundamental change we need. The status quo is unsustainable.
Radical yet practical
A new direction for Britain
A new direction for Britain
That’s why we’re building a blueprint for a better future. One based on radical-yet-practical ideas and genuine reforms that embrace the tech revolution and cut through our stale political debates. Our plan for the Future of Britain connects modern politics with the reality of citizens’ lives and the ever-evolving transformation happening around them.
For too long, British people have been offered only competing visions of the past. It’s time for a new era. It’s time for the Future of Britain.

A smarter health system
Improving the quality and quantity of life
We need to deliver a health system that not only treats people when they are sick, but also prevents illness in the first place. Using technology and data, we can give people greater control of their own health. We can improve diagnoses and disease prevention. And we can provide quality personalised care when and wherever people need it.
A new era for education
Personalised, world-class education for all
Britain’s future depends on children having access to the best skills and education in the world. It should not depend on where they live. Through technology, we can deliver a world-class education system that is agile, affordable and accessible anywhere. By using AI-powered tech, we can break the link between location and quality to deliver choice, personalisation and data-driven improvement.
Planning for the future
Investing in the infrastructure we need
The UK’s physical and digital infrastructure is suffering from systems designed for a bygone age. We need to speed up the pace of planning processes and expand our definition of essential infrastructure to fast-track the digital, energy, transport and service industries of the future.
Powering next-generation industry
Building the companies of the future
Science and tech must be central to Britain’s national purpose if we are going to maintain a strategic edge in an era of historic technological change. We must embrace AI, use data and the cloud, accelerate biotech and medical science, and innovate to produce clean energy and solve the climate crisis.
A decade of electrification
Investing in the grid for future prosperity
We need a radical overhaul of our approach to powering Britain. We need large-scale investment in innovation and physical infrastructure to deliver the shift to clean, secure and low-cost energy, allowing people to power their homes and businesses to power the growth our country needs.
Investing in our strategic edge
Showing global leadership through technology
The dynamics on the world stage are shifting. The United States and China are in a new contest for supremacy, with technology at the heart of that competition. A new plan for Britain requires the country to invest in science and technology to maintain a strategic edge in the 21st century.
