UBI Lab started as a collaboration between multiple organisations and individuals in Sheffield, seeking to explore the potential of universal basic income (UBI) and the possibility of a pilot in the city.
UBI is a regular, unconditional sum of money given to everyone without means testing or a requirement to work. It could be an answer to precarious work, rising inequality, increasing social care needs, the democratic deficit, and the automation of our workforce.
UBI Lab believes that in Sheffield we should be testing the effects of UBI on paid and unpaid work, leisure, wellbeing, relationships and our community – and talking about the idea with everyone, from individuals to institutions.
