Our Mission

EQUITY Research Centre is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, focused on one of the UK’s greatest social and political challenges of our time – the destructive ideology of extreme neoliberal economic policy and the negative effects it has on civil society. This has led directly to the decline of civil liberty, increased inequality, discrimination and injustice.

 

OUR MISSION

Our mission at the EQUITY Research Centre is to provide a platform for relevant researchers, academics, specialists, experts and those with experience to help shape, expand the scope of the debate, educate the public and present new ideas to the powers that be, in both the political and corporate environment.

Our mission is to highlight the situation we find ourselves in. We are particularly concerned with public policies adopted by governments (both Labour and Conservative), as well as some corporations, to further their own agendas which risk undermining Britain’s once cohesive, civic society through the ideology of profit before people.

This situation continues to destabilize our democracy and the institutions that supports civil society and creates a vacuum where divisive elements rise and more extreme politics and policies become the norm. Over the years, this has manifested itself as Brexit and after a decade of extreme neoliberal forces, fashioned as an economic policy by way of ‘austerity’ – a significant proportion of our society now feels threatened in all areas of their lives.

We will inform those in positions of power via in-depth investigative research, studies, events and through fact-based, unbiased reporting, with the aim of exposing systemic wrongs with an ultimate purpose to spark change.

Our research will culminate in an annual Public Equity Index report – the first in Britain. It will report primarily on areas such as the state of health, welfare, education, housing, social care, inequality, poverty, debt, discrimination, democracy and injustice and measure them against their Western peers.
