Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Isaiah 58.6
We see injustice where the rules and norms of society discriminate against the weakest and give the advantages to the most powerful. Our work concentrates on some of the UK’s biggest current challenges, the looming housing crisis, rising poverty and inequality, and the economy.
To have somewhere we call home is a fundamental part of our human dignity. To be deprived of such a basic necessity is to feel less than human. Yet the UK’s housing crisis is leaving more people without a safe and secure home.
Poverty and inequality are predicted to increase over the next years. The poorest tenth’s standard of living will fall for at least two more years, the richest tenth will not have experienced a year of declining standard of living since 1948. As inequality rises, we work to help all contribute to and benefit from the wealth of society.
The way an economy is run has a profound effect on culture, societies, the environment. For that reason it is vital that Christians are able to speak on the most pressing economic issues of the day.
