With your support, churches and community groups can help some of England’s poorest and most marginalised people transform their lives for the better.

WE’RE TACKLING POVERTY IN ENGLAND

Since we started, we’ve invested £70million in helping local churches fight poverty and injustice in England’s most deprived communities.

From winter night shelters and breakfast clubs, to foodbanks, family support and debt advice, churches and community groups supported by Church Urban Fund are tackling poverty where they are right now.

ONE IN FIVE PEOPLE IN ENGLAND LIVE IN POVERTY

Rising food and fuel costs, low wages, insecure work and welfare reforms are hitting the poorest hardest, right now.

A child born into a poor family is more likely to struggle at school, experience health problems and have shorter life expectancy than a child from a better-off family.

Local churches are tackling poverty

Discover how local churches supported by Church Urban Fund are bringing transformation to their communities every day.

They’re going without one or more things that most people think are essential. Like a hot meal each day or heating at home.
