CHRISTIANS AGAINST POVERTY
Elim Church
0800 328 0006

Debt Centre run in partnership with Elim Church

"How would you feel if you woke up every day feeling trapped and imprisoned because you have no money? If you felt miserable, alienated, worthless and isolated from society because you have no money - if you longed to do what you want, when you want, so that you could feel free… wouldn’t you want someone to help you?’

"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless.  The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty."

"Despite there being more than enough wealth in Scotland to go round, lack of money and opportunity is crushing the future of too many of Inverclyde’s people because they cannot see, think or plan beyond today"

"‘We are one of the richest countries in the world... there is absolutely no reason why anyone should have to live in poverty. We need to change the way we look at this; at how we can make positive changes."

However, once you see the mechanics of the poverty industry up close, you realise it’s in a state of permanent growth and that without individuals, families and communities in crisis there would no longer be a role for these massive institutions."

SCOTTISH CHILD PAYMENT

The Scottish Child Payment will give more immediate support to eligible families who need it most, as almost 60% of all children in poverty live in a family with a child under the age of six. It will be delivered to all remaining eligible families with children under 16 by the end of 2022, with no cap on the number of children in families.
