The Jo Cox Foundation makes meaningful change on issues that the late Jo Cox MP was passionate about.
Like Jo, we believe that a kinder, fairer and more connected world is possible. Underpinning this belief is the understanding that we have more in common than that which divides us. As we work to make change, we follow Jo’s example of collaborating with others and bringing people together to achieve more than we can alone.
The change we seek to make
We work in three areas: we nurture stronger communities, champion respect in politics and advocate for a fairer world.
We want less lonely, better-connected communities across the UK, where everyone feels that they belong.
We want anyone, regardless of their background, to feel able to participate in our political discourse and be treated with respect.
A Fairer World
We want responses to the world’s complex problems to be informed by humanitarian approaches.
We make change led by the values through which Jo lived her life:
We believe, like Jo, that there should be no ‘too difficult to deal with’ pile.
We believe that achieving real change requires us all to pool our strengths and exchange our skills and resources.
We believe that kindness and compassion are signs of strength, and that only by understanding others can we build relationships and bridge divides.
Our strategy outlines the change we seek to achieve over the next three years (2023-2025), with specific objectives for how we will nurture stronger communities, champion respect in politics and advocate for a fairer world.
