This is an opportunity to contribute to an organisation which plays a leading role in shaping constructive public discussion about some of the most contested issues in Britain today.
British Future in 2018 is in a strong position, driven by a passionate Director and an engaged Board of Trustees. Our vision is to encourage an open conversation about identity, integration, migration and opportunity. British Future is an independent, non-partisan thinktank which engages with peoples hopes and fears about immigration, integration and identity, seeking to build a broad consensus among the public and opinion-formers for reforms that work for everyone. The organisation's long-term aim is a country where we are no longer ‘Them and Us' but rather a confident and welcoming Britain, inclusive and fair to all.
