The CSJ Alliance is a free members' network of grassroots charities and voluntary organisations from across the UK. The CSJ identifies models of excellence, effectiveness and innovation in tackling the root causes of poverty, visiting and assessing each charity that joins the Alliance.
All charities invited onto the Alliance:
The CSJ champions the work of its Alliance members at the heart of government, using illustrations and examples of best practice in private meetings, at public events, and in our policy reports. We also provide letters of endorsement to back up funding bids.
We work closely alongside Alliance members to identify the problems and root causes in the most disadvantaged communities, and to build strategic, evidence-led policy solutions. We learn from the outstanding and effective solutions that Alliance members have pioneered in the community, and which are successfully turning lives around.
We run an annual CSJ Alliance Conference, bringing together all members from across the UK for a day of inspirational talks, training seminars and networking. The conference is free, and we offer a travel bursary to those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
We run regional roundtables, seminars and brainstorming sessions to keep more remote organisations engaged with the core of the CSJ’s work, and to give regional opportunities for networking.
Inner City Challenge
Alliance members are offered the chance to have an MP come to spend three days with them, as part of a CSJ programme to expose MPs to the true nature of problems faced by the poorest communities.
