Social Justice

Newcastle is committed to social justice in all that we do. We are dedicated to working together to create a fairer and more just society.

Social justice is about the distribution of society's benefits and burdens. Social justice is about addressing the unfair outcomes that result from the coming together of social inequalities and institutions.

We are committed to embedding principles of social justice in all that we do here at Newcastle.
