At JRF, we want to inspire action and change to solve UK poverty - the pandemic has shown us that life is full of things we can’t plan for and that we all need information we can rely on.

JRF events explore some of the most pressing issues we are facing today ranging from destitution to economic security and the future of work. 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.

Catch up with our past events, see below.
