Over 1m people in the UK are being forced into poverty due to the current economic crisis, many of them children. People from different backgrounds in all parts of the country are having to skip meals, rely on foodbanks and consider money lenders.
Action can be taken, however. Over £2bn surplus products are generated in the UK every year, including essential items like nappies, bedding and warm clothing. We receive donated surplus like this and give it to those who need it to survive.
