How churches are in the vanguard of the struggle to defeat poverty

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Everyday life in breadline Britain is increasingly fragile. The goal for more and more of us is not to thrive, but to survive. Almost a decade into the so-called ‘age of austerity’, it’s clear that we have not all been ‘in this together’, in spite of what former Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne claimed....It has become clear that churches are in the vanguard of the struggle to defeat austerity age poverty because of their roots in local communities up and down the land. The big question, therefore, is, what are churches doing with their agency and is it enough to tackle the structural causes of deep-rooted poverty?’
