This report assesses the progress that Great Britain has made towards improving social mobility.

It highlights that:

  • inequality is entrenched in Britain, from birth to work
  • being born privileged means you are likely to remain priviledged, whilst being born disavantaged means you may have to overcome barriers to improve you and your children’s social mobility
  • urgent action needs to be taken to help close the privilege gap

This summary document sets out the main findings and recommendations from the full report.
