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.
