If we all shared more then we would all be richer
The Sheffield Equality Group aims to promote, advocate and support policies in Sheffield that will direct resources actively towards those with lowest income and least opportunities. This means narrowing the income gap between the richest and poorest because the evidence demonstrates that this will benefit everyone in Sheffield and make our city whole.
It hasn’t always been this way and it doesn’t have to be this way.
Inquality has greatly increased in the UK over the past three decades. Three out of five of people say they think the Government should do more to reduce differences in income, just one in five disagree. To make our country more equal would be better for our economy. It would mean:
- less money spent on prisons and benefits
- less money spent on making us well.
- it would be better for the environment and for charity.
