what we do

Church Action on Poverty is a national campaigning body, but also runs grassroots projects in local communities.

We give people a voice. By sharing the stories of real-life experts more widely, we can challenge the myths which stigmatise people in poverty.

We work alongside communities for change. We give people in poor communities the skills and knowledge they need to have power over the decisions which affect their lives.

We speak out to challenge injustice. Many churches already do a great job dealing with the effects of poverty in their communities. But by taking part in campaigns together, we can challenge the injustices which are the root cause of poverty.

If you oppress the poor, you  insult their creator.
(Proverbs 14:31)
