A Better Public Life

We work to promote respect and civility, inspire women and young people, and work across political divides.


Jo was renowned for her ability to forge cross-party relationships and to work collaboratively with those of opposing political views. 

"One of the reasons I am entering politics is because only 23% of the House of Commons is female. If women don’t make that 50/50 then the people taking decisions about our communities are never going to be reflective of the needs" - Jo Cox

Tackling Intimidation in Public Life

We work to bring about a meaningful reduction in the intimidation and abuse in public life, raising widespread public awareness about its harmful impacts and working with partners to find tangible solutions. 

The Foundation is currently working with the Committee on Standards in Public Life on a Joint Standard of Conduct, which will set out the minimum standards of behaviour expected from all political party members. Read more here.
