The New Working Class with Claire Ainsley

September 6th 2018

Thought-leader talks

Claire Ainsley, Executive Director of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) talks about her ground-breaking book The New Working Class: how to win hearts, minds and votes

New Working Class coverThe majority of people in the UK identify as working class, yet no political party today can confidently articulate their interests. So who is now working class and how do political parties gain their support?

Based on the opinions and voices of lower and middle-income voters, this insightful book, by JRF’s Executive Director Claire Ainsley, proposes what needs to be done to address the issues of the ‘new working class’. It provides practical recommendations for political parties to reconnect with the electorate and regain trust.

There will be opportunities to discuss Claire’s suggestions and to buy signed copies of her book.

Date: 8th November

Time: 6.00 drinks reception, 6.30 talk

Venue: Cardiff City Hall, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3ND
