The Inaugural Octavia Hill Lecture

Hay Festival 2018, 

Radical Help: How we can Remake the Relationships Between us and Revolutionise the Welfare State

The Welfare State was revolutionary: it lifted thousands out of poverty, provided decent homes, good education and security. But it is out of kilter now: an elaborate and expensive system of managing needs and risks. Today we face new challenges. Our resources have changed. How should we live: how should we care for one another; grow our capabilities to work, to learn, to love and fully realise our potential? Cottam is a social entrepreneur and the founder of Participle. Prior to that she worked as an urban poverty specialist at the World Bank. Chaired by Justin Albert, Director of National Trust Wales. The lecture is given in the name of the great social reformer and founder of the National Trust.
