Evidence to the All Party Parliamentary Group on hunger

Many thanks to all those NAWRA members who contributed to the CPAG survey on reasons for food bank use.

The response rate was fantastic, with more than 200 advisers filling in the survey. This formed the biggest part of a submission to Feeding Britain’s update report on behalf of twelve charities and faith groups, brought together under the banner of a working group on benefit administration.

This in turn was widely cited in the report itself, a lot of whose conclusions were very much in line with the evidence we presented. CPAG will continue to work on this issue, and the survey will be very helpful as part of that.
