The Equality Trust
The Equality Trust works to improve the quality of life in the UK by reducing economic inequality.
UK income inequality is among the highest in the developed world and evidence shows that this is bad for almost everyone. People in more equal societies live longer, have better mental health and have better chances for a good education regardless of their background. The Equality Trust works to improve the quality of life in the UK by reducing economic and social inequality.
We campaign for change that will have significant impact in reducing inequality and advocate a range of policies that can reduce inequality at a national, local and individual level. We catalyse the work of the public by informing individuals and local groups about the damage inequality does and then support and empower them to take action to address it. We co-operate with organisations and groups from across our society including businesses, trade unions, charities and others to prioritise inequality reduction.
Where we work: United Kingdom
Focus areas: economic justice and inequality, social inequality, corporate governance, socio-economic rights, income and wealth inequality, tax justice, pay ratios
Our Citizens for Financial Justice project
Claiming spaces: building the capacity of European citizens to demand financial justice
The project will:
- increase the number of European CSOs supported and enabled to actively participate in strong civil society networks and promote public awareness raising, development education, advocacy and campaigning on the role of private finance in health and education inequalities;
- increase the number of citizens in the EU who are informed about and engaged in discussion on the role of private finance in health and education inequalities, by global South citizens and CSOs;
- and influence policy makers at local, national and EU level, through media, citizen engagement and CSO advocacy work.
