Inspiring Social Change
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation works to support and speed up the transition to a more equitable and just future, free from poverty, in which people and planet can flourish.
For us, ending poverty in the UK is a moral cause: to ensure dignity and respect for everyone, and to address exclusion and powerlessness. We are working towards our mission through policy work, research, and campaigns. We also resource and partner with organisations that are doing the difficult and important work of redesigning the world they want to live in, to achieve deep, transformative change.
About Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF)
We were established over a century ago by Joseph Rowntree, to help understand the root causes of poverty.
Our work is supported by around 70 permanent staff across York, London and Glasgow.
