At JRF, we want to inspire action and change to solve UK poverty, but we know there’s a lot of work to do if more people are to understand it and call more loudly for solutions.

Covid-19 and the resulting measures to contain its spread means we have all had to adapt to stay connected. Despite the challenging external climate JRF have still been able to bring together 2,400 people for timely discussions on poverty, social security, housing and work across 17 events in 2020.

Catch up with our past events, see below.

As we head into 2021 the team are looking forward to continuing the success of our online offerings and live in hope that we will be able to see more of you face to face when the time is right.

We’re working closely with our lived experience partners to ensure that future events are grounded in everyday reality, whilst at the same time continuing with JRF's impactful policy and political engagement activities.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation event calendar is sure to include something for everyone as plans include more framing conferences including the launch of our Talking about housing sessions, Challenge Poverty Week in Scotland, England and Wales, political party conference fringe events, the launch of our State of the Nation report and more from our economic discussion series.

We have many more Zoom webinar events coming up so keep watching this space as dates and further details are confirmed.

Do contact one of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation Events team on [email protected] for further information or if you would like to be included on the invitation list stating which event or subject area you are interested in.
