Millions of people in the UK live in misery because over the last 20 years they have simply been left behind by an ever increasing disparity between lower income and higher income households. The government have hidden and ignored the truth which at the least represents a very sorry moral stance and in reality is an uncontrollable function of evolved capitalism. The political process prevents adequate solutions. What is an extremely difficult problem can ONLY be solved with bold actions from the people themselves. Action Against Poverty UK aims to support communities in constructing their own systems of survival as well as gather support and evidence for legal changes.
