“Having been involved with People Against Poverty & Business Against Poverty now for 4 years I have witnessed the amazing and crucial work that the charity does. PAP changes lives, it gives opportunities for people in the areas and projects where PAP work to have purpose, value & pride in themselves, PAP educates not only children but adults as well. With this ability to learn comes the ability to grow and take control and ownership of their lives. PAP build homes for the homeless, provides work in areas where there is total poverty and unbelievable hardship. The way PAP work is amazing, the drive that they have, to improve the lives of the poorest people, those who are unable to have their most basic needs met, food, shelter, care & education. These are basic needs that would not be met if it were not for the awesome work of PAP & BAP.
Business: Being a member of Business Against Poverty gives my company the opportunity makes a real difference, working with the charity allows myself and my staff to get involved in making a difference, helping to give opportunities the poorest people that I have come across in my life, The BAP community is committed to helping the poor & changing lives. Working with the other members of the charity proves that nothing is impossible, change for the dispossessed, homes for the homeless, food for the hungry, education for the uneducated and freedom from poverty. We are a like-minded business community making a true and significant difference not only for the projects themselves but also our businesses”.
Chris May – Mayden
For Mayden, joining Business against Poverty was a no-brainer. It isn’t a lot of money but it has a significant and tangible impact on the lives of people who live in conditions we can’t even imagine exist in the 21st Century. And unlike most charities there are further opportunities to get involved and actually see the benefits of our support on the ground; many of my peers have actually been out to Romania, rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in. But more than that, Business against Poverty provides access to like-minded professionals and companies whose ethos aligns with our own, providing the perfect foundation for a successful working relationship.
We now work regularly with a number of suppliers in the Business against Poverty network. We are delighted to be associated with such a committed, pragmatic charity and look forward to being involved in its continued growth.
Rob Beale -Rob Beale Limited
We were attracted to BaP because it is a Christian organisation based in Wiltshire. They think outside of the box when raising money by organising events for the business world like networking events, business seminars and a Gala Ball. Being a small organisation the overheads are kept to a minimum so that more of the money gets to where it is needed.
Wanting to experience first hand I joined them on an Awareness Trip to Romania. It was a real opener that people are living in such squalid conditions that I would not even put my pets to live in – and worse of all, it’s in an EU country! It was great to see the projects that the charity are involved in and the people who are working on the ground making the difference to people’s lives.

Business against Poverty is run by a team of committed and dedicated staff with a real focus on helping others. Our experience of the BaP team is that they really care about where the money goes and how it is used. To this end the BaP team keep us informed of the benefits that have been provided from donations, they send regular newsletters and host regular events bringing together like minded professionals to provide yet another benefit and that is mutually beneficial business.
