Cross out Poverty

Following a meeting in Wells, Somerset, in June 2013, there was an expressed need for participants to keep in touch, to publicise the problem of poverty, both locally and nationally, to adopt innovative ideas and best practice in tackling poverty and its underlying causes, and to campaign for a more sympathetic approach to poverty and its many causes from the state and media.

Faith groups lead the way in social action and are seeing poverty as a growing problem among the most vulnerable in society as Government makes changes to and removes resources from the welfare system.
