Making things fair
Liverpool is the latest northern city to set up a Fairness Commission to remind local people and the Government nationally of the disproportionate effects of hard times.
Liverpool’s commission has just delivered its first report under the chairmanship of Claire Dove, the chief executive of Blackburne House women’s technology and education centre. Its central recommendation is a ‘Liverpool living wage’ for a city which, overall, is England’s most deprived local authority.
Brava Design aided the Liverpool commission to make their report and findings available in a brochure /report format, poster and even a film.
Claire Dove comments about the report:
It is a realisable ideal that sums up our vision for a city that affirms the integrity and value of all its citizens. But it will need all the city’s public institutions, businesses, community groups and citizens working together, and a new, more focused and accountable model of civic leadership.
Steve Parry from Neptune Developments comments:
Businesses succeed through the efforts of talented, fulfilled and appropriately rewarded staff. I believe that the idea of a Living Wage makes economic as well as ethical sense.
