We know that poverty in the UK is an avoidable, solvable problem that can be fixed. That’s why we’re coming together to call for a future where poverty can’t keep anyone down.
You’re invited to join the Let’s End Poverty Founding Assembly on 14 October to build the movement towards ending poverty in the UK. Connect with others in a regional gathering or online to show that taking action to end poverty matters to our communities and we want our political leaders to make it their priority too.
