The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), launched the Fair by Design Programme on 9 November 2017 aiming to eliminate the poverty premium within 10 years. Backed by JRF, Big Society Capital and Nominet Trust, we’re delighted to announce that the management of the Fair by Design Change Programme will be taken on by Barrow Cadbury Trust from December 2017.
Our bold ambition, to eliminate the poverty premium within 10 years, has two strands; the Venture Programme and the Change Programme, which tackle the issue from different perspectives and which we hope will together achieve our mission.
The Venture Fund will invest in and accelerate businesses tackling the poverty premium, while the Change Programme, starting in April 2018, will encourage the eradication of the premium by working with corporate providers, policy makers, regulators and by raising awareness through public debate.
A Director to manage the Fair by Design Change Programme will be recruited in the New Year. More details of the Fair by Design Change Programme will be available in early 2018.
