As a Child Poverty Action Group supporter, you’ve already helped make a
difference to children growing up in poverty today.
As Remember A Charity Week draws to a close, I wanted to let you know that some
of our successes over the years have been made possible thanks to the gifts in
wills we have received from CPAG members and supporters.
Watch Gaynor's story now.
In the 1990s, thanks to gifts in wills, CPAG purchased a building with a
purpose-built training suite to offer courses for welfare rights advisers. Now,
thanks to the initial gifts, CPAG provides training, publications and
information to over 10,000 advisers and frontline workers each year.
And last year, we received a generous gift from author Mary Barker. This was
also the year when CPAG’s judicial review proceedings ensured that between £100
and £150 million would be paid out to over 70,000 disabled people who were
underpaid when they were moved to Employment and Support Allowance.
Put simply, gifts in wills allow us to have a huge impact on the lives of
thousands of people in poverty. Watch Gaynor's story now.
For over fifty years, CPAG has worked tirelessly to ensure children’s voices are
heard, that families struggling financially are supported and that
decision-makers are held to account. We know that with your support, and by
using our research, expertise and influence effectively we can meet future challenges and change things for the better.
Our Vice Chair, Gaynor Humphreys, recently shared her story of why it is
important to her to leave a lasting gift to help future generations of children
and families living in poverty. If you missed it, you can watch it here:
