UK Cost-of-Living Crisis Relief Fund

Summary

The UK is facing the worst cost-of-living crisis in 50 years, with millions of people earning a wage that doesn't meet actual living costs. This crisis is plunging households across the UK into hardship. Your donation to this fund will help to support those most in need, equipping them with food, shelter, and mental health support.

Challenge

Food bills are continuing to soar at the fastest pace since 2008, and energy and transport costs are still increasing. The cost-of-living crisis in the UK is pushing 1.4M people into facing absolute poverty. This is in addition to 14M people already living in poverty. More than 86% of nonprofits in the UK are worried about the impact that the cost of living will have on those who rely on them. The sector's capacity to support communities is already under severe pressure due to COVID-19.

Solution

Your donation to this fund will provide vital lifelines to local organizations and communities in the UK at a time of crisis, giving those on the front lines the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable. As the situation evolves, the fund will evolve, too, supporting long-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations for those who are worst impacted in the UK. We will work with our partners on the ground to get funds where they're most urgently needed.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

Your donation to this fund will:

  • Help those in danger of becoming homeless by offering financial support for rent, food and energy bills
  • Provide mental and emotional support to families and individuals affected by the cost of living crisis
  • Bring communities together to deal with the ongoing rise in costs
