The former Tory leader and founder of the Centre for Social Justice will address the conference on “breaking the exclusion cycle” on 11 September.
His report made 190 proposals aimed at reducing “social breakdown”, including tax breaks for some married couples and making lone parents on benefits work part-time when their youngest children reach five years of age. It was presented to David Cameron and will influence Tory policy.
Polly Toynbee, a columnist on The Guardian, will chair the morning plenary session, and a question-and-answer session on whether the voluntary and community sector can help build a more equal society.
Tom MacInnes from the New Policy Institute and John Stoker, the Compact Commissioner, are among the other speakers.
The conference, which takes place at Keele University in Staffordshire, is open to all.
