RED has been busy during the Party Conference season this year.
Hilary spoke at a Policy Network fringe event where she outlined a vision of switching off the post-war welfare state, replacing it with cocreated services that prevent rather than cure social problems like climate change, anti-social behaviour and chronic disease. John Hutton MP joined in the debate which was chaired by Hilary Armstrong MP.
Matthew spoke at a Compass fringe event on Democracy and the Public Realm with John Denham MP and Geoff Mulgan of the Young Foundation. He talked about RED's work on constituency MPs - looking at ways to rebuild our democracy by improving the relationship between the public and their local representatives.

RED was also at fringe events on Climate Change with David Miliband MP the Environment Minister, and Malcolm Wicks MP the Energy Minister.
