The Fairness Commission was set up to find out how to make Brighton & Hove a fairer and more equal place to live and work. Launched in September 2015, it was set up by the council as an independent body.

The 12 commissioners on the Fairness Commission explored issues that cause inequality and listened to the concerns of residents, community organisations and businesses across the city.

The report

The Fairness Commission released their report on 27 June 2016. The report provides recommendations to the council and its partners to increase opportunities for the city's residents. The findings will inform the council’s budgets and make sure resources are being used to tackle inequality.
