Nuffield Foundation

The Nuffield Foundation is a charitable trust endowed by William Morris, Lord Nuffield, the founder of Morris Motors. Our aim is to improve social well-being in the widest sense, primarily by funding research and innovation in education and social policy.

We believe policy and practice should be influenced by independent and rigorous evidence.We also aim to ensure these qualities are maintained in the future by funding programmes to build capacity in science and social science research. The Nuffield Foundation has funded this project, but the views expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Foundation.
