Community

The task of eradicating child poverty is far too big for any single individual, organisation or branch of government. However we believe that if the whole community works in partnership, each playing a part, then a very different future is within our grasp.

Whether you are an individual who wants to do something, a community group, a bunch of friends, a religious organisation, an education provider, employer or policy writer, we would love you to be an “anti-poverty partner”.

There are many ways you could play your part. Scroll through our ideas for inspiration, and see what fits with you, your abilities and your sphere of influence. Remember, on their own, each of these things feel insignificant, but in partnership TOGETHER we can dramatically change the present and the future for children across MK.
