Dashboard: Great Britain Aid Attitudes & Engagement

This Dashboard, downloadable below as a pdf file, presents top-line findings for Great Britain in 2020, which show changes in attitudes and engagement from last year. The DEL Dashboard offers an easily digestible snapshot of shifts in issues of concern, engagement and attitudes.


  • Unsurprisingly, public concern has focused on global pandemics (+22% as an important issue). Economic crises are now the most concerning issue for British respondents (48% say they are the most important issue).
  • In Great Britain, some signs that concern for poverty in poor countries might be decreasing. Change from January still small, and majority is still concerned.
  • Support for aid spending decreased significantly in the US (-6%), remained flat in Great Britain, and reverted to September 2019 levels in France and Germany.
