Talking About UK Poverty Toolkit

We’ve taken the launch of our new UK Poverty report as an opportunity to release a new edition of our Talking About Poverty toolkit. This straightforward guide gives you the key messages from our latest content and findings and is designed to support you – our friends and allies campaigning to turn the tide on UK poverty – to prepare a quality response, tell a well-framed story on the issues you’re concerned about, and join us to call for action. Together, we can be a collective voice for change that’s impossible to ignore.
