Their vision is for a prosperous UK without poverty, where everyone can thrive and contribute. Our comprehensive strategy – We can solve poverty in the UK – sets out recommendations for how this could be achieved. We are building on our strategy by working with private, public and voluntary sectors, individuals and communities to inspire debate and action, and to develop solutions.

Services provided:

They aim to influence positive and lasting change. We do this by:

  • searching out the underlying causes of poverty and disadvantage, and identifying solutions  – through research and learning from experience
  • publishing and promoting evidence, and bringing people together to share ideas
  • demonstrating solutions – developing and running services, managing land and buildings, and supporting innovation in housing and social care (JRHT).
