Our purpose and vision
Our vision is for a prosperous UK without poverty where everyone can thrive and contribute. To achieve this we work in partnership with private, public and voluntary sectors, as well as with individuals and communities. Using evidence and experience, we search for the underlying causes of social problems and demonstrate practical solutions in order to influence lasting change.
We search out the underlying causes of poverty and disadvantage, and identify solutions – through research and learning from experience.
We demonstrate solutions – developing and running services, managing land and buildings, and supporting innovation.
We aim to influence positive and lasting change – publishing and promoting evidence, and bringing people together to share ideas.
