Statement on Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) media reports

28th Jul 2018

Recent media reports have highlighted the funding made by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT). JRCT is a completely separate organisation to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF).

JRF has no connection with and has never given money to the organisations reported in the media. We are a politically independent organisation which funds research, policy and practice on poverty in the UK.
