Economic Justice Programme

The Trust carried out a strategic review in 2021-22. Our Trustees decided to take a place-based approach to our Economic Justice programme focussing entirely on Birmingham. A theory of change has been developed with Birmingham partners to support and be involved in influencing and change-making activities.

Our aim is to support the movement for economic systems change in Birmingham. By ‘movement’ we mean people and organisations who share the same broad aims for change (reducing economic injustice) but who may have very different approaches.  We will be focussing on three types of activity: personal empowerment to enable people to influence policy and practice; campaigning and advocacy for change; and supporting organisations building alternative approaches.
