what we do

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, we can change that.

Together, we can help people exercise their own power

Our 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, we 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, we can give them a voice.

Together, we can build a more just society
