The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) is one of the largest social policy research and development charities in the UK. We spend over £10 million a year on our research and development programme.
For over one hundred years we have been searching out the causes of social problems, investigating solutions and seeking to influence those who can make changes. We do this by:
- gathering evidence from research and from practice, including the work of the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust;
- communicating the messages widely and impartially;
- working in partnership with others.
