Director, Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS)
Paul Johnson is Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS). The institute is widely considered the leading independent economic research and analysis organisation in the country.
Paul has published and broadcast extensively on various issues in the economics of public policy including tax, welfare, inequality and poverty, pensions, education, climate change and public finances. He is the author of major books on pensions, tax and inequality and is a regular contributor to news and current affairs programmes across the UK broadcast media.
As well as a previous spell at the IFS in the 1990s (including a period as deputy director) Paul has been chief economist at the Department for Education and director of public spending in HM Treasury. At the Treasury his responsibilities included public sector pay and pensions and climate change policy. In the latter role he worked closely with Nicholas Stern on his review of the economics of climate change. Other positions include a period as head of economics at the Financial Service Authority and as a senior associate with Frontier Economics.
Paul was also deputy head of the Government Economic Service. He served on the council of the Economic and Social Research Council and was elected to the council of the Royal Economic Society. He was a founder council member of the Pensions Policy Institute and has led a review into the policy of pensions auto-enrolment.
Other roles and bodies Paul has been involved in include the council of the Family and Parenting Institute, the Pension Provision Group, the Commission on taxation and citizenship, the Youth Justice Commission and the Commission on Living Standards.
Every year Depaul UK supports around 3,700 of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in the country.
We offer them emergency overnight and long term supported accommodation, accompanied with specialist support. This includes employability skills, health and housing advice and money management training – helping to provide the life skills and knowledge that these young people need to move beyond homelessness.
Our vision is that every young person has a place to call home and we make it our mission to offer homeless and disadvantaged young people the opportunity to move into stable accommodation, fulfil their potential and move towards an independent and positive future. People exactly like Sam, who found himself homeless after his relationship with his parents broke down:
“The help from Depaul was amazing. Coming to Westbourne hostel has affected my whole life for the better. The encouragement, the support and backing from Depaul has made an immense difference on shaping my future in society. Thanks to the help from Depaul I have come so far and have just started University, beginning a new positive chapter in my life.”
