The Wise Group is ready, determined, and excited about how our mission aligns with the Labour Party’s new direction under Keir Starmer‘s leadership.

Labour Government’s Five Key Policy Priorities and Their Alignment with the Wise Group’s Purpose
Under the dynamic leadership of Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour Party has laid out five crucial policy priorities aimed at addressing the UK’s most pressing challenges. These policies are designed to spur economic growth, enhance public services, and promote social justice. The synergy between these priorities and the Wise Group’s purpose is striking, as both are dedicated to creating a fairer, more inclusive UK. The Wise Group’s transformative work not only supports but amplifies these goals, offering hope and tangible benefits to communities across the nation.
1. Securing the Highest Sustained Growth in the G7
Labour’s ambition for the UK to achieve the highest sustained economic growth among the G7 nations is a clear commitment to building a robust and inclusive economy. The Wise Group embodies this vision, actively uplifting the most vulnerable people and communities. By creating opportunities and reducing poverty, we can lay foundations for a thriving economy where prosperity is shared by all. Our efforts ensure that economic growth is not just a statistic, but a reality felt in every household, fostering hope and resilience across the UK.
2. Making Britain a Clean Energy Nation
Labour’s pledge to eliminate fossil fuels from all electricity generation by 2030 aligns perfectly with the Wise Group’s UK-wide initiatives to tackle household fuel poverty and promote energy efficiency. Our proactive approach, partnering with various UK utility companies to provide energy advice, retro-fit and support services, empowers individuals and communities to reduce their vulnerability to rising energy bills while also reducing their carbon footprints. This not only aids in the transition to a greener future but also ensures that environmental sustainability and its benefits are accessible to everyone. Our work instills a sense of agency and belief, demonstrating that a cleaner, more sustainable Britain is within reach and beneficial for all, regardless of circumstance.
3. Improving the NHS
Labour’s commitment to reforming health and care services to reduce health inequalities resonates deeply with the Wise Group’s mission to enhance health and wellbeing for the most challenged in our society. Through relational mentoring and community support, we ensure that individuals can access essential healthcare and support services, fostering the belief that they can adopt healthier lifestyles. Our holistic approach not only complements Labour’s vision for a more equitable system but also adds social value by reducing the need for crisis interventions and helping to alleviate pressure on the NHS. By bridging gaps in healthcare access, we champion health and social equity, reinforcing the belief that good health is a right, not a privilege.
4. Reforming the Justice System
Labour’s focus on creating a fairer and more effective justice system is strongly supported by the Wise Group’s dedication to community justice across the UK. Through person-centred Relational Mentoring and support services, we work tirelessly with the Ministry of Justice, the Scottish Government, and a many specialist partners to reduce reoffending and assist individuals in reintegrating into society. Our justice services are proven to reduce the likelihood of returning to prison by an additional 20%. Our efforts help build safer and more just communities, reducing crime while also providing hope and second chances to those striving to rebuild their lives. We underscore and champion the importance of compassion and support in the justice system, advocating for a society where everyone, including victims, has the opportunity to start over without stigma and contribute positively.
5. Raising Education Standards
Labour’s commitment to raising education standards to ensure every child can succeed is mirrored in the Wise Group’s initiatives to bridge the skills gap and support sustainable career progression. By offering targeted skills training, Relational Mentoring, and employment support for those most distanced from the employment market, we empower individuals to achieve their educational, career, and life aspirations. Our mentoring of young people has increased their sustainment in apprenticeships by 35%. Our work fosters a more enabled, socially included, educated, and skilled workforce, essential for the future prosperity of communities across the UK. Our dedication to education and personal development instills hope and ambition, proving that with the right support, everyone can reach their full potential.
The Labour Party’s five key policy priorities resonate deeply with our purpose to transform lives and build better communities. We are unwavering in our dedication to creating a society where fairness and inclusion are at the forefront. By working together, we can create lasting, positive change that will uplift individuals and communities across the UK. Together, we offer a vision of hope and progress, where every person, no matter their circumstances, has the opportunity to thrive. As we say at the Wise Group, being distinctive isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.

Together, we can transform lives and build better communities.
