The Royal Society of Arts’ new report suggesting a Universal Basic Opportunity Fund

Anthony Painter, Jake Thorold and Charlie Young have written a report entitled Pathways to Universal Basic Income: The case for a Universal Basic Opportunity Fund.

The authors write this:

In order to help provide greater security as people need to navigate economic, technological and care challenges in the 2020s, the idea is to provide up to two years of a £5,000 payment for each family member. This will enable people to re-train, try a new business idea, assume caring responsibilities, and perhaps try a new career. It gives people a helping hand to adapt to change; something we don’t believe the current social contract does adequately.
