Message from the Chair

"Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Fairness Commission over the past two years. We have now formally completed our work – but we see our final report as the beginning of a wider campaign for fairness in York. ‘A better York for everyone’ was published in September 2012. It proposes 10 Fairness Principles, makes 7 major recommendations and brings together a host of Ideas for Action. City of York Council is taking the lead in delivering our recommendations. We urge all of you to read our report and find ways in which you can campaign for and contribute to greater fairness in the city."
