Young people from low income communities are much less likely to succeed than their wealthier peers. This impacts negatively on a young person’s ability to achieve the health, happiness and career they aspire to. This also impacts the economy - if the UK raised the educational outcomes for poorer children, GDP would increase by £6bn a year by 2030 and by £56bn a year by 2050.
The Fair Education Alliance is not prepared to accept the status quo and is committed to leading the fight against educational inequality, through a coalition of organisations from across education, charities and business. Together, the Alliance is working to tackle educational inequality, building a fairer education for all by 2022.
Our Programmes aim to improve the life chances of children and young people in the UK by supporting them through key educational transitions. We do this by focusing on individuals and institutions: making sure our work has a long-term impact. We aim to improve offer rates rather than simply increasing applications, so students can realize aspirations not merely to raise them.
