    Rather than publish Ideas as Ideas blogs, we have published them for the moment under the Proposals section as a series of Ideas documents. You can see the wide range of these by browsing the Proposals section. If you want to publish your own Idea you can do it either as an Ideas blog here or as an...

  • Retiree Foundation Proposal
    Posted by # Probably42 May 22

    Retirement is the first time in life when we have no structure to guide us, which is both good and bad. We have just published a proposal for creating a Retiree Foundation. The objective of the Foundation is to release the potential of individuals in later life for their benefit and for the benefit of our society, by providing a Retirement Structure.

     

    Do take a look, we'd love to hear your comments on the proposal. Just click on the 'Ideas' tab in the navigation.  

  • Elderly Social Care
    Posted by # Probably42 May 22

    Do you have views on Elderly Social Care? We've just published the outputs from both our longstanding Ideas Group known as Deep Thought and a New Online Ideas Group known as Zero Gravity.

     

    Just click on 'Ideas' in the navigation bar to see these.

     

    If you might like to join one of our Probably42 Groups just use the 'Contact' link in the footer to express your interest and we'll send you more details. 

     

  • Coronavirus as an opportunity for inspiration
    Posted by # Probably42 Apr 23

    The latest output looks at how we can take advantage of the changes and watershed created by the Coronavirus situation as we emerge from it. It's a very difficult time but also a time of great opportunity for improving life in the UK as we emerge from lockdown.
