Government social mobility strategy

On 5 April 2011, the Government published Opening Doors, Breaking Barriers: A Strategy for Social Mobility.

The strategy focuses on inter-generational social mobility, to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to do better than their parents. It aims to tackle unfairness at every stage of life with specific measures to improve social mobility from the foundation years to school and adulthood.

As part of the strategy, the Government will create a new statutory Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission.
