Briefing paper

The Joint Public Issues Team and Church Action on Poverty have started an ongoing programme of research with churches and local charities: Gleanings: Listening and learning about poverty under lockdown.  Through surveys and regular focus group conversations they are aiming to understand the impacts being seen seeing on the ground.  This briefing provides a short snapshot, putting churches’ experiences in the rapidly developing wider context, and offering a context for thinking about what happens next.
