The UK is one of the richest nations in the world yet many people in many communities face significant hardship.
- Reductions in public spending mean there is greater social inequality and greater geographic disparity as services people rely on are cut.
- The neighbourhood services that enhance our quality of life – from youth clubs to parks – have felt the brunt of spending reductions.
- As our economy and welfare system change, some people remain marginalised and vulnerable – unable to find work and meet their basic needs.
- The effects of climate change – from flooding to heatwaves to energy price rises – are impacting disproportionately on those who have least protection.
Addressing these issues require new ideas and fresh approaches to helping individuals and communities thrive. Your donations help ensure our projects and services reach the people who need them most and that we continue to have the resources to innovate in a changing world.
