The Centre for Social Justice is an independent think tank established, by Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP in 2004, to seek effective solutions to the poverty that blight parts of Britain. The CSJ highlights the work of profoundly differing and unique small voluntary organisations and charities. These groups provide welfare in the most broken parts of British society. We champion their local, voluntary and effective work through: an Alliance of poverty fighting organisations, a national annual Awards programme, and seminars for the voluntary sector, media and politicians. In addition, we conduct policy research that combines data, anecdotal evidence and polling. Through this we seek to gain an accurate picture of poverty in Britain, its causes and consequences, and to define the role the state and other players can and can’t play in its reduction."
