We believe that people should have enough to live, during this winter’s cost of living emergency and beyond.
Urgent government action is required, offering targeted support to those in greatest need, to take us through this winter’s emergency.
Whilst emergency measures will provide much needed respite this winter, the government must commit to this support being the first steps on the longer journey towards a poverty free Britain.
What do we want
The government must ensure that everyone has enough to live through this winter and beyond, and commit to build back from this moment of crisis to turn the tide on poverty for good.
To begin, the government should introduce a package of emergency support measures which:
Once this essential emergency support has been put in place, the government should build on this to address rising and deepening poverty to turn the tide on poverty for good.
To do so, they should work with people who have been struggling to keep afloat every day, and charities and faith groups who work alongside them, to design solutions that work towards a poverty free Britain.
