Put your faith into actionmake a donation to Church Action on Poverty today.

Your gifts help to put gospel values of justice and compassion into practice. They ensure that the voices of people in poverty are heard. They help churches across the UK to speak truth to power about UK poverty.

Together, we can build a more powerful movement in the churches and beyond, to loosen the grip which poverty still has on too many people’s lives in our country.

Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbour.

(Deuteronomy 15:7–11)

“Church Action on Poverty helped me find direction and confidence. These days I feel of value, that my life and my words have meaning, and that I can be part of positive change.”
