Inspiring a fairer society
WHO WE ARE
The Fairness Foundation is a new project that works to change the debate around fairness in order to build a fairer society.
We are a registered charity (number 1044174) and are non-party-political. Our geographic focus is on England, although on some issues we look across the United Kingdom.
Our vision is a fairer society in which everyone has the same chance to live their best and fullest life.
Our mission is to change the terms of the public debate about fairness, to promote the benefits of a fair society, and to inspire citizens, the media and decision-makers to create a fairer society.
THE FAIR NECESSITIES
To build a fairer society, we need a definition of fairness that most people can get behind.
We believe that fairness is about delivering equal life chances for children and a fair deal for adults, with the aim of rewarding hard work while 'designing out' bad luck that is outside people's control.
OUR FOCUS ISSUES
We work across a wide range of social and economic issues in support of our objectives.
We recognise that achieving a fairer society requires action to tackle a complex set of interdependent problems. Click on an issue below to read our summary of what fairness looks like.
