Over the past six years, Fairness Commissions have been established in localities across Great Britain to examine and develop approaches designed to tackle poverty and inequality in their communities. This report, arising from a round table discussion with Fairness Commission and policy representatives from around the UK, reflects on Fairness Commissions as a model for social change at a local level, and asks how they might support greater civic wellbeing in a more enabling state.
