We are determinedly independent and non-partisan and we guard our independence vigorously. We are not party political and do not promote any particular party policies; we remain open to all ideas and policies that will help move people from poverty to prosperity. We go where the evidence leads us.

In recent weeks, LIF and its supporters have been subject to a series of misleading and false allegations which risk significant harm to our work and reputation.

LIF has proactively notified the Charity Commission of these false allegations and is sharing evidence to demonstrate how the activities of LIF are in line with relevant guidelines, as well as the steps we have taken to protect our independence and advance our research and educational work.
