leaving a gift in your will

The most thoughtful gift you may ever give...

Legacy case study

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves: for the right of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Proverbs 31:8–9

Over the last 30 years, Church Action on Poverty has challenged the unjust treatment of people seeking sanctuary, tackled irresponsible lending practices, and given thousands of poor and marginalised people the confidence and opportunity to influence decisions which affect their communities. We have influenced government policies on the Minimum Wage and financial inclusion, and made sure the voices of people in poverty are heard at Westminster. Our work has alleviated or eradicated poverty for hundreds of thousands across the UK.


    If we have managed to achieve this over the last 30 years, imagine what we could do over the next 10 or even 50 years in partnership with you, local churches and communities. As the gap between rich and poor continues to grow, our work remains vital. We need to carry on speaking out for justice for future generations.

    One of the ways you can help is by making a thoughtful gift in your will. An act of kindness today… which will make a real difference to those who face exclusion and poverty in the future.
