Centre for Social Justice

The CSJ was established by Iain Duncan Smith MP in 2004 to "put social justice at the heart of British politics and make policy recommendations to tackle the root causes of poverty".
The CSJ is an independent think tank that studies the root causes of Britain’s social problems and addresses them by recommending practical, workable policy interventions. The majority of the CSJ’s work is organised around "pathways to poverty". These are: family breakdown; educational failure; economic dependency and worklessness; addiction to drugs and alcohol; and severe personal debt.
The Family Policy Unit was established in 2017 within the CSJ to promote the role of families within govt policy making. The Unit is led by Frank Young, and supported by the policy team at the CSJ. ref
There are many excellent charities that help to alleviate the consequences of capitalist exploitation and Tory govt policies. In order to try to stifle political opposition from these charities, the CSJ formed the CSJ Alliance. The description makes clear that their purpose is to infiltrate the charities and use a variety of con tricks to mislead and misdirect the people working at the charities, and to misuse the evidence and conclusions of the charities regarding poverty, its causes and its solutions.

- Jan.06.2016: Centre for Social Justice. Created by Iain Duncan-Smith, whose actions as DWP minister caused death, destitution and homelessness, particularly for people with disabilities, the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) exists to absolve the govt's policies of cause or blame for rapidly increasing desperate poverty of millions of people in Britain. It seeks to achieve this misdirection by re-defining poverty as entirely the fault of those who suffer with it. Prominent people: Philippa Stroud, Cara Usher-Smith, Stephen Brien, managing director Edward Boyd. DuckSoap.
