start your own group

If there isn't a group in your area yet, we'll help you get something started!

    Church Action on Poverty local action guideIf you're keen to start a new group in your area, we can...
    • help you to contact other local churches and supporters;
    • provide resources for you to use;
    • provide advice, mentoring and support - over the phone or by coming to visit you;
    • put you in touch with other local groups so you can share ideas.

    Even if you're not ready to form a local group, there are other ways you can spark some local action on poverty issues...

    • Plan a service on Church Action on Poverty Sunday
    • Get a food bank to pledge to End Hunger
    • Run workshops or discussion sessions
    • Plan an event like a Pilgrimage or a civic breakfast

      To find out more about all of these ideas, just download our local action guide. Or contact our Communications and Supporter Relations Manager.
