In 2010, the Commission produced its first report on equality (How Fair is Britain?) and separate report on human rights in 2012. Is Britain Fairer? is the Commission’s follow-up report on both equality and human rights. This report outlines our findings and sets out the challenges for the future.

Most significant areas requiring improvement
The evidence we have gathered shows there are areas where no progress has been made or Britain has become less fair for some groups over the last five years. We have identified eight key challenges:
- Improve the evidence and the ability to assess how fair society is.
- Raise standards and close attainment gaps in education.
- Encourage fair recruitment, development and reward in employment.
- Support improved living conditions in cohesive societies.
- Encourage democratic participation and ensure access to justice.
- Improve access to mental health services and support for those experiencing (or at risk of experiencing) poor mental health.
- Prevent abuse, neglect and ill-treatment in care an detention.
- Tackle targeted harassment and abuse of people who share particular protected characteristics.
