Our Vision

Toynbee Hall’s vision is of a future free from poverty

Our mission is to support people and communities to break down the barriers that trap them in poverty.

Toynbee Hall values:


  • We act with ambition, integrity and with the courage of our convictions, using evidence-based social action to shape what we do and give us an authoritative voice to challenge, influence and make a difference.


  • Inquisitive and collaborative, we seek out relationships with people, communities and partners to develop, as well as to share our knowledge and understanding; facilitating and supporting them to design their own solutions to tackling poverty


  • We are open-minded, inclusive and transparent; learning from what we do; seeking fresh and alternative perspectives to shape and influence our practice.
