Christians Against Poverty
We exist because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty. But the truth is that they are rife in the UK. In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor. Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.

Hope 4
Hope4 is a local charity for helping homeless and badly-housed people in Rugby. We provide practical support for homeless people: help to find jobs and accommodation, sign-posting to other agencies, IT facilities for job-hunting, advice, help with benefit claims and job applications, food, showers, laundry facilities and beds for rough-sleepers in the winter.

The Baptist Union of Great Britain
For Baptists the concept of a family is important. The church is not so much a particular place or building, but rather a family of believers, committed to Christ, to one another and to the service of God in the world.

Founded in 1965 when three UK-based Christian organisations for girls amalgamated, GB England & Wales specialises in working with churches to provide local community groups for (primarily) girls. GB is passionate to raise the volume of hope among girls and young people, and we do this by providing local action-packed, stretching, fun and safe friendship groups for children, girls and young women aged four to 30 to join.
