The social justice outcomes framework highlights our priorities, how we plan to measure progress, and what we want to achieve.

The pursuit of a fairer society is not an easy or short-term task. Sustained improvement to the life chances of disadvantaged families and individuals will take years, not months. The outcomes framework will help to ensure that social justice remains at the forefront of government policy as changes take effect.

We have published a series of reports showing how we are achieving the outcomes set out in this framework. We will update these reports regularly.
