We’re going to end the need for food banks in the UK.
That’s why we work with food banks in our network, their communities, other organisations to challenge the structural economic issues that lock people in poverty and to campaign for change.
We believe that things can change. We’re committed to doing the hard work together to forge a fairer society. Join our campaigns today and make your voice heard.

Keep the Lifeline
More than a million people could be forced to turn to food banks as the UK government plans to cut Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit payments by £20 a week this October. This cut will be a devastating blow for millions of households which are already struggling to make ends meet. Without a huge amount of public pressure, the UK government will go ahead with this cut and we can’t let that happen. Join us in making your voice heard and help us to #KeepTheLifeline.
People are being forced to food banks because five weeks is too long to wait for Universal Credit. This isn’t right – the government needs to end the five week wait. Join the campaign and help make that happen.
Lift the Ban is a coalition of 200 organisations fighting for people seeking asylum to be given the right to work in the UK. Right now, people seeking refugee status can’t work while they wait for a decision on their claim, instead having to live on just £5.39 per day. That’s wrong. People seeking asylum should be able to use their skills and live in dignity.
As a result of poverty – not a shortage of food – too many people don’t have enough food in Scotland. A Menu for Change aims to tackle this by evolving the emergency response to make sure those facing an income crisis can afford to buy their own food.
All Kids Count is a coalition calling on government to lift the two-child limit on Child Tax Credit or Universal Credit as it denies families the support they need from our social security system when they experience tough times – trapping kids in poverty.
Stop the #DebtThreats is a coalition calling on the Government to create new rules requiring creditors to use easy-to-understand language in their letters and signpost people to sources of support for their debt.
