Welfare is intrinsically connected to the modern system of work – and strong welfare remains fundamental to wellbeing, freedom and sustainability. Autonomy specialises in basic income policy to help move our societies beyond conditionality and provide economic security for all.


From pilot design and costing, to economic modelling and movement-building, we look to push forward unconditional cash transfers within social and economic policy.

Basic Income Conversation offers a leading voice on cash transfer schemes and forms a key component of Autonomy’s future of welfare research programme

By helping coordinate activist, academic and political networks, we are ushering in a better world of unconditional welfare and redistributive policy.
