Social Justice Conference 30th October at Westminster Hall, London

30th October 2013

In March 2012 the Government launched Social Justice: transforming lives, it set out a new and ambitious vision to support the most disadvantaged individuals and families in the UK.

The vision is built on two principles; prevention and creating a 'second chance society'. These fundamental values underpin the Government's strategy to tackle multiple disadvantage and ensure that local and national services work together to tackle the causes of poverty in the UK.

On the 31st October 2012 at our 1st annual Social Justice Conference the Work and Pensions Secretary, the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith launched the Social Justice Outcomes Framework. This formed the next step of the vision. It highlighted the Government's priorities and how they planned to measure progress and define what they want to achieve.

On April 24th 2013 the government published Social Justice: transforming lives - one year one. It checked the progress made, but also set out a new emphasis on social investment which will encourage and create a framework which will enable a wider range of private investors to invest in social ventures which will bring them social and financial return. This will be supported through a new tax relief for social investment.

With these issues in mind GovKnow is proud to present the 2nd annual Social Justice Conference. This conference will provide an up to date check on the progress in delivering social justice by those who are bringing the strategy to life. It will include presentations and speeches from policy makers to policy implementers. Whilst providing all those working to tackle multiple disadvantage with the opportunity to come together, take stock and strengthen the social justice narrative.

CCMA members can attend at the discounted rate of £325 + vat.
