Join our movement for change
It’s been good to pray together and reflect on how our faith in God inspires us to act with compassion and build community.
Together we can help bring about a more just society, and end hunger and the need for food banks in our communities.

We need an Essentials Guarantee
Time and again, in the gospels, we see Jesus restore dignity and bring life to people he meets. He is always available and generous with those who are struggling.
In stark contrast to this, our social security system isn’t protecting people from going without. The significant shortfall between people’s living costs and the basic rate of Universal Credit is leaving people with no option but to seek support from a food bank.
That’s why we’re working with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to call for an Essentials Guarantee within Universal Credit, which means the basic rate is set at a level that at least covers life’s essentials and would ensure that support can never be pulled below that level.
Together, let’s make a change
Join us in calling for change and help us ensure everyone can afford life’s essentials.
