Alliance: Putting social justice at the heart of British politics – The CSJ Poverty Fighter’s Alliance ensures the insights of small organisations working on the ground with Britain’s most vulnerable are taken on board by policy makers in central and local government. Tens of thousands of people working and volunteering in charities, or as carers, across the UK, know first hand the challenges the faced by people struggling on low income, to overcome debt, addictions, to come to terms with family breakdown, and the complexity of issues that keep people trapped in poverty.

About: What we do – The CSJ highlights the work of profoundly differing and unique small voluntary organisations and charities. These groups provide welfare in the most broken parts of British society.

We champion their local, voluntary and effective work through:

  • an Alliance of poverty fighting organisations,
  • a national annual Awards programme,
  • seminars for the voluntary sector, media and politicians.

In addition, we conduct policy research that combines data, anecdotal evidence and polling. Through this we seek to gain an accurate picture of poverty in Britain, its causes and consequences, and to define the role the state and other players can and can’t play in its reduction.
