As a charity, LIF exists to advance education for the benefit of all by identifying and assessing policies which contribute to the pathways from poverty to prosperity – this is the central theme in all of our work.
We actively share our expertise and insights, which flow from our research and the evidence, on important questions of policy. We share this research with the public and disseminate our work widely.

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.
