The Joseph Rowntree Foundation

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is an independent organisation working to inspire social change through research, policy and practice.

Their vision is for a prosperous UK without poverty, where everyone can thrive and contribute. Their comprehensive strategy – 'We can solve poverty in the UK' – sets out recommendations for how this could be achieved. They are building on their strategy by working with private, public and voluntary sectors, individuals and communities to inspire debate and action, and to develop solutions.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation funded the 2015 and 2016 Unusual Suspects Festivals in Glasgow and Northern Ireland
