Will you ask your future MP to commit to ending poverty for good?

1 in 5 people in the UK live in poverty, and the situation is getting worse.

The number of people facing destitution has doubled in the last five years, so that right now 3.8 million people can’t afford to feed, clothe and keep themselves warm.

We need change, and we need it to come from Parliament. It’s vital that our future MPs understand the depth of poverty in the UK and recognise the urgent need to put an end to it.

Candidates are much more likely to commit to ending poverty if they know it’s something their constituents care about. By contacting candidates across the UK, we can lay a strong foundation for tackling poverty in the next Parliament.
