Briefing papers are developed by our Policy Committee. The Policy Committee has representation from staff, Strategic Advisory Group members and representation from member groups.

Rather than being responsive to policy, these papers aim to add to debate on issues and inform policy development. Although some of the papers are old we have kept them on here as they provide a context for the currently policy environment.
