We put gospel values of justice and compassion into practice

Our vision, as a Christian organisation, is that the UK can and must be transformed into a country where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.

Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. We believe that our vision – an end to poverty in the UK – can become a reality.

Help churches be catalysts for change

Churches have a key role to play, by affirming the gospel imperatives to give priority to the poorest and most marginalised in society, and by working to transform unjust structures.
