A staggering 1 in 5 people are living in poverty in the UK
Struggling to pay their bills, find work and hold a roof over their heads; life is incredibly challenging for the poorest people in the UK.
In recent years, we’ve seen how families are battling food poverty, increasing numbers of people are sleeping rough and refugee and asylum-seeking communities continue to face uphill struggles.
We believe that everyone has the right to shelter, food and a source of income. That’s why we’re working across the UK to support vulnerable individuals and communities in need and to transform lives.
Transforming lives across the UK

Here at Islamic Relief, we’re partnered with a range of local community-based and larger national organisations to help support and empower disadvantaged individuals and communities across the country.
We work with partners who support our four key areas of work:
- Building resilience to poverty
- Empowering women
- Supporting refugees and asylum-seekers
- Youth and family development
We also support emergency response initiatives across the UK so when emergencies hit, we’re able to help communities in need. And as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, we also support a number of organisations offering support to people affected by Covid and the economic impact of the virus.
In an increasingly difficult climate, we’re striving to support as many people as possible across England, Wales and Scotland. Our aim is to help empower people across the country through these critical partnerships.
Help us continue to save and transform lives across the UK.
