    Scrap the Cap Campaign

    The Poverty Alliance

    "We all want to live in a society where everyone has enough to live a decent and fulfilling life. But people impacted by the benefit cap are currently held back from this. The Scrap the Cap campaign will call on the UK Government to remove the benefit cap, which places a limit on the total amount of benefit payments a person or family can receive. We believe that it is wrong, in principle, to sever the link between the support a person needs and the level of support they receive."

    Living Income Campaign

    New Economics Foundation

    The living income campaign aims to set an income level below which no one can fall. Everyone should afford the basics for a decent quality of life, whether in or out of work. By fixing our broken social security system and creating new universal payments, a Living Income will guarantee a sufficient minimum income for all.

    Plenty to Share

    This is Rubbish

    Many organisations are battling hard to redistribute surplus food to people facing food insecurity – but a growing number are realising that this is not a long-term solution to either food waste or food poverty. A number of organisations have come together to call for a world without food waste or poverty - where we waste less and share more.

    All Kids Count

    Child Poverty Action Group

    The All Kids Count campaign is fighting for every child's right to free health care, a good education, and a childhood free from poverty.

    #5WeeksTooLong

    The Trussell Trust

    The #5WeeksTooLong campaign is in response to the growing number of people moving into Universal Credit. Every person who applies for this must wait at least five weeks for a first payment. This is leaving many without enough money to cover the basics and forcing people into foodbanks.

     

    This campaign is hoping to inspire people to "Join Together", "Build Pressure" and "Make Change".
