More than just numbers. The scale of people living in poverty.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation defines poverty as ‘when your resources are well below your minimum needs.’ As a charity, Pledge is dedicated to reducing the number of people living in poverty. This means ensuring the groups we work with, have all the necessary resources they need to live a long and fulfilling life.
Living in poverty is often a cycle that traps a person from ever breaking free. When your resources are reduced, such as losing a job or becoming homeless, often your needs increase and you’re not able to pay for basics things like food, shelter or education.
Two Year Goal
We aim to have helped 550 people who are either homeless or unemployed by 2020.
