Catch22 analyses commitments made by three political parties in the run up to this General Election

In our manifesto, we asked politicians to put people, place and purpose at the heart of politics. Now, we are analysing commitments made by the three main parties across our main areas of work.

11 December 2019

The Catch22 manifesto includes key policy asks for justice, education, young people and families, employability, apprenticeships and the National Citizen Service.

Ahead of the General Election, we’ve looked at the commitments made by the three main parties on these areas to see how they align with our thinking.

2019 General Election Manifesto Analysis

Our policy ‘asks’ included:

    • Contracts for probation services that incentivise innovative practice and are measured against how well they meet the needs of services users rather than just transactional processes
    • Apprenticeship minimum wage increased to the living wage, to improve take up
    • Longer contracts (10 year minimum) for services to allow Alternative Provision school providers to make longer term investment plans and secure appropriate accommodation
    • Every children’s home to be registered on a central database which is readily available to local authorities
    • Greater transparency on the cost benefit of National Citizen Service programmes
