Governance information

We are an independent social change organisation, working to support and speed up the transition to a more equitable and just future, free from poverty, where people and planet can flourish.

Our mission

For us, ending poverty in the UK is a moral cause: to ensure dignity and respect for everyone, and to address exclusion and powerlessness.

JRF supports and undertakes many different types of work in all four nations of the UK. This includes policy development and insight gathering, advocacy and campaigns, impact investment, funding pioneers and visionaries, field building, and supporting those building grassroots movements.

Our work is supported by around 150 permanent staff across York, London and Glasgow.

We strive to create an inclusive and supportive working environment that provides opportunities for everyone in line with our equality and diversity statement.
