Church Action on Poverty is a national ecumenical Christian social justice charity, committed to tackling poverty in the UK. They work in partnership with churches and with people in poverty themselves to find solutions to poverty, locally, nationally and globally.
Church Action on Poverty is a national campaigning body, but also runs grassroots projects in local communities.
It’s time to close the gap between rich and poor
Growing numbers are going hungry, or trapped in poverty despite their best efforts. But people in poverty are usually blamed for their situation, or treated as powerless victims. Together, they can change that.
Together, they can help people exercise their own power
The training and support empower people in poor communities to make their voices heard. Then churches and individuals across the UK amplify their voices, and call together for change.
Together, they can change perceptions of people in poverty
Labelled as scroungers and blamed for many of society’s problems, people on low incomes never get to tell the real stories of their resilience and the injustices they face. Together, they can give them a voice.
Together, they can build a more just society
