Contents

This year's British Psychological Society Seante-voted theme is tackling class-based inequality, seeking to add social class to the characteristics protected under the Equality Act. In this bumper edition, we collect contributions from members of the 'Psychology of Social Class – UK Policy Implications' group, and others. As ever, we've sought to mix the personal, professional and psychological. Dozens of psychologists have contributed to this issue, and we thank them. Later this summer, we're due to launch our re-developed website and app. Do connect with us on Twitter and over email to let us know what you think.
