The CSJ is proud to have made an impact in the fight against poverty and social breakdown.
The job, however, is far from done.
Despite being one of the richest countries in the world, poverty is endemic throughout Britain. A third of households in the poorest communities are on out-of-work benefits, 2.6 million people are struggling with severe personal debt and 4,000 people are year are dying because of their drug addiction (the highest number since records began).
Moreover, two-in-three young people from poor backgrounds do not achieve C grades in GCSE mathematics and English, and two in five do not have a father at home.
This state of affairs is unacceptable, and reform is needed to transform the lives of those growing up in Britain’s poorest neighbourhoods. The CSJ is well equipped for and committed to helping solve these deep-rooted social injustices.
The CSJ is a not-for-profit organisation and we pride ourselves on our independence.
Our work involves persuading the Government to change its policies and laws, and therefore we do not take any Government money.
Instead, we are reliant on the contributions of individual private supporters, corporate sponsors and trusts and foundations, who share our commitment to putting social justice at the heart of British politics.
Our views and policy recommendations are based purely on our research, and we will not accept any source of funding where a funder seeks to influence these. We undertake due diligence to ensure that accepting a source of funds will not compromise our independence.
None of what we do would be possible without the great generosity of our supporters. We would be deeply grateful if you would consider joining us in the fight against poverty.
