We’re building a collection of resources to support you and your church to grow in awareness and understanding of the problem of poverty in the UK, and to help you reflect and act on what the Christian faith has to teach us about how to respond to it.

Food for thought

At the Trussell Trust, our food bank network has borne witness to the devasting financial impacts of the pandemic which have left many families and individuals unable to afford to put food on the table. In an article for the Diocese of Southwark, Emma Revie, CEO of the Trussell Trust,  considers how best to rebuild our society to respond to the problem of poverty.



As we provide emergency support to people in crisis,  how do we show compassion in our communities and seek justice in society? Listen to Bishop Graham Tomlin & Mark Melluish in conversation on this topic with Trussell Trust’s Emma Revie. New Wine article
