Join the Movement

Business against Poverty is a charity that focuses on projects here in the UK and six international countries. We focus on communities, both those where our projects are based, as well as our UK business supporters. The charity works with project partners to provide food, shelter, clothing, education and legal aid to communities in extreme poverty. Projects include child sponsorship, food programmes, building of houses, legal assistance and education.

Business against Poverty runs on a membership basis, with very affordable entry level membership for sole traders and Limited Companies.  In addition, we have a series of enhanced and bespoke membership packages. See below pricing and the benefits your business will reap from becoming a member of Business against Poverty. We are always happy to work with companies to build a bespoke package where appropriate.
