The Chancellor said 'the economic emergency has only just begun' - but today we didn't see enough from him to help people hardest hit. His #SpendingReview failed to address the £20 rise to #UniversalCredit, due to end in April. Join our campaign for change

Christmas is for giving. So this year we’ve taken a ‘DIY’ approach to our Christmas ad & are giving the money we’ve saved directly to our charity partners, @crisis_uk @TrussellTrust, to help them tackle homelessness & hunger in the UK.

We’re working towards a #HungerFreeFuture where we all have enough money for essentials. This support from @PapaJohnsUK will make a real difference in helping support people in crisis today, whilst working towards a better future for everyone. Thank you! >

We have launched the ‘Frontline Worker Survey 2020’ & we need you to hear from you!


Share this survey to ensure decision-makers listen to frontline workers when developing strategies to reduce homelessness.

For any frontline workers supporting people experiencing #homelessness, please take 10 mins to fill in this important survey from @SMITF_frontline. The survey closes 30th November >

On the first day of the Tesco Food Drive we received 360kg of food valued at £630!!! That’s a huge achievement!

Thank you to everyone who donated!

With 400+ hampers to fill, we still need more help. Let’s keep this up!! 🛒🎁🎄

It’s day two of the @Tesco’s Food Collection + there’s still time to support your local #foodbank. Our network provided 2,600 emergency parcels to children every day at the start of the pandemic so every donation is vital. #EveryCanHelps >

“We must use this moment to protect those suffering most & ensure we create a society where no one is forced to turn to a #foodbank.” Thank you @peter_aldous for backing #HungerFreeFuture & calling on govt to extend the £20 uplift to UC #KeepTheLifeline >

Quoted @RefugeeAction

Giving people seeking asylum the right to work is common sense, particularly in a pandemic. We don't think there's any question about that.

But as they're still being denied it, there will be a debate in Parliament today in which the case to #LiftTheBan will be made.

Today MPs will debate whether people seeking asylum should have the right to work. We're part of the #LiftTheBan coalition & together, we believe it's time to give people the chance to provide for themselves & their families & not be pushed into #poverty >
