Our History

The Social Rights Alliance has grown out of the work of Just Fair – a charity that works to ensure UK law, policy and practice complies with domestic and international human rights obligations.  At the moment, the SRA sits within Just Fair. As such, we have access to the skills and resources of the team and are part of its wider network.

The first Social Rights Alliance started in January 2019 in North East England and led to the recruitment of Just Fair’s first community organiser based in Newcastle. In July 2020 the Social Rights Alliance secured funding to develop as an England-wide initiative and also secured a second community organiser in Manchester. 2021 saw the launch of our first Community Researchers project bring together human rights activists from across England through an online action research project. 

The Social Rights Alliance is presently funded by the Tudor Trust.
