Joseph Rowntree puts much of his entire wealth into three trusts, intended to enhance different aspects of his thinking – and capacity to act – on social problems, such as the alleviation of poverty, changes in housing conditions, education and political reform. These trusts still exist today, and they still apply the ideas of their founder to problems of society today.

@ChocolateLoveTO@jrf_uk@jrct_uk@JRRT1904 Thank you. We recognise this too. It has always been clear that the company operated during the period of colonialism, but this can also feel like new info. Catherine Hall's descriptions of 'knowing and not knowing' & 'turning a blind eye' feel helpful in capturing this duality.
