Poverty is in every community – but not everybody sees it.

Embarrassment and fear lead some people to conceal their trouble, while others just don’t think anyone could help even if they did open up.

You might not see it, but it’s there. Behind closed doors and drawn curtains, tightening its grip. UK poverty is real.

There are parents missing meals so that their children can eat. There are elderly people living alone who haven’t turned on the heating in days because of the cost. There are people battling multiple mental and physical health problems whilst also being hounded by debt collectors – letters, phone calls, banging on the door.

This year, we’re calling on passionate Christians and churches to be a part of the solution in their communities. Are you ready to open your eyes and look again at UK poverty?
