It’s time to listen

We want to ensure the real, everyday impact of poverty and the cost of living crisis is heard in the media, in our communities, and by government. From zines to podcasts to parliamentary lobby days, we aim to amplify the voices of those living on low incomes in as many ways as we can. This website showcases just some of the work we have been doing.
