They generate intelligence to challenge race inequality in Britain through research, network building, leading debate and policy engagement. In order to effectively overcome racial inequality in society. Since 1968, the Runnymede Trust has worked tirelessly to represent the lives of those millions of Britons who constitute this country’s Black and ethnic minority communities and to build a Britain in which all citizens and communities feel valued, enjoy equal opportunities, lead fulfilling lives, and share a common sense of belonging.
In recent years their work has included playing a key role in bringing the Windrush Scandal to light; publishing landmark reports on Islamophobia, Race & Class, and COVID-19 inequalities; producing groundbreaking research with Penguin Random House to expand the English Literature curriculum; and highlighting racial disparities across labour markets, education and criminal justice in mainstream media.
The Runnymede Trust believes in working alongside civil society, policymakers and MPs to address the very real blight of racism and discrimination in Britain today.

We support artists and arts organisations across the breadth of the UK to develop and present original ideas and practices. We commission research that explores the value that art and culture bring to society.

We fund over 30 art organisations to expand their work within their communities. Our London gallery space hosts a free programme of exhibitions, discussions, films, workshops and an extensive library, which explore new approaches to teaching the visual arts and showcase our work from across the UK.
