CSJ Director Christian Guy was invited to introduce David Cameron’s key note speech on opportunity in Runcorn.
The Prime Minister was speaking on plans to help working families and extend opportunities to all.
In his introduction Christian Guy praised the Prime Minister for pledging to govern with compassion and wanting to create true social justice.
He said: “Partnering with those on the front line fighting disadvantage we help political leaders give people all they need to stand on their own feet, and to have a better hope.
“That's why we were proud to work with the last Government - whether in pushing for more work not more welfare, help for troubled families, a better future for children in care, freedom for those in modern slavery or rehabilitation for prisoners and addicts.
“And that's why it's an honour to be here with you all today and to work with the new administration.”
David Cameron spoke about the need for everyone in the country to have the opportunity to be able to make a good life for themselves.
He spoke about the need to tackle the root causes of poverty, not just the symptoms, which the CSJ has put at the heart of its message.
These, he said, are family breakdown, debt, addiction, poor schools, lack of skills and unemployment
The Prime Minister also advocated a higher minimum wage, supporting parents with relationship support, and making work pay through Universal Credit, all of which the CSJ recommended.
