Yasin was named the Prince's Trust Mentor of the Year 2018 for his work on Big Lottery funded Talent Match Leicestershire, a Corporate Affiliate Partner of the IEP, that help 18-24 year olds who have been out of work and education for a year or more.

Wicked problems: Reimagining Beveridge's "Five Giants" - Isolation
Tuesday 15th October 2019 at 09:00 - 10:30

In 1942, William Beveridge identified five main social challenges plaguing British society, which became the focus of the modern welfare state: squalor, ignorance, idleness, want, and disease. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Beveridge Report, the RSA's research team travelled across the country to determine the areas of most concern to contemporary British society.

With unerring consistency, participants highlighted the same issues: disempowerment, intolerance, isolation, climate change, and inequality. These are the New Giants, shared challenges faced by Britain and the rest of the globe.

Over the coming months, RSA Oceania will coordinate an online event series to explore the causes and consequences of these wicked problems, and discuss what a new social settlement to tackle these issues would look like. The third event in the series will address isolation.
