Poverty and homelessness action week is almost here…

phawlogo It is shocking that in the UK today people increasingly rely on Foodbanks. Low wages, zero-hours contracts, outrageous interest charges by doorstep lenders, benefits cuts, benefits delays, ‘sanctions’ on job-seekers – all these and more contribute to a Britain where many are locked out of what the rest of us take for granted. So from Homelessness Sunday on 26 January to Poverty Action Sunday on 2 February, there is a  call on churches across the UK to stand alongside people in crisis; to give, act and pray for justice.

Can you do something to mark this week? See their website for resources and inspiration.
