The case for supporting our work

Speaking at a conference in May 2012 Education Secretary Michael Gove said: “We live in a profoundly unequal society. More than almost any developed nation, ours is a country in which your parentage dictates your progress. Those who are born poor are more likely to stay poor and those who inherit privilege are more likely to pass on privilege in England than in any comparable country. For those of us who believe in social justice, this stratification and segregation are morally indefensible.”

The Share Foundation’s appointment in 2012 by the Department for Education to build an inheritance for children and young people in care throughout the United Kingdom is a major opportunity to break this cycle of deprivation.

Please read our Case for Support, which sets out how we intend to achieve this aim.
