Changing our world, business by business

 Business against Poverty is a community of business leaders committed to ethical and sustainable standards, all looking to use their companies to address issues of poverty and take action.

Since 2009, Business against Poverty has been encouraging a culture of caring for our planet and compassion for its people. Like-minded business leaders come together to support the work of People against Poverty: a humanitarian charity that provides new hope and a more sustainable future to people in need globally – a handshake, not a hand out.

Working together towards a brighter future, Business against Poverty’s members all have purpose at heart as part of a movement for change. Collectively, we work towards a world where poverty and suffering is alleviated around the world.

Who we are

What our members say

Sarah Perrett, Whitespace Agency

“I have experienced poverty myself when I was a struggling single Mum, so helping in this area is very close to my heart.” ”

Jules English, Triangle Design Ltd

“The decision to join Business against Poverty was an easy one for us; what initially began as a chance to connect with like-minded business people has evolved into an essential strand of our corporate social responsibility pledge.”

Tom Vaughton, Varn Media

“The single biggest benefit for us is that we are helping other people with less money and support to build self-sustaining communities and businesses.”

Patrick Moss, Moss Naylor Young

“Ever since joining, I’ve seen Business against Poverty as fundamental to identifying who we are, what our values are, and aligning this with the kinds of organisations we wish to work with: bodies that want to make life better for other people – giving out as well as taking in.”

Graham Massey, The House

“The movement is what the movement does! The strength of any organisation is the people who are attracted to it, in whatever capacity – perhaps more so for a charitable organisation. I see a healthy membership best demonstrated through active participation; you reap what you sow.  ”
