The Lewes Divide: what you can do

Following our successful event at the Depot in November 2017, we know that people want to take action. Here's the what you can do section from our leaflet on poverty:

  • Get aware – take time to find out more about these issues and spend time with those who are affected.
  • Support – foodbanks (direct, via church or supermarket) volunteer, give supplies/money
  • Campaign: talk to employers and others you know, using the LLW leaflets.
  • If you are a Living Wage employer, sign up to make this public and help promote to other employers
  • Help LLW with publicity – many people are unaware of the real Living Wage.
  • Raise awareness of poverty in Lewes with councillors and your MP.
