ATD Fourth World

< Back to directory


ATD FOURTH WORLD is a human rights-based, anti-poverty organisation with more than 40 years’ experience of engaging with individuals and institutions to find solutions to eradicate extreme poverty in the UK.

Working in partnership with people affected by poverty, ATD Fourth World has concentrated its efforts on supporting families and influencing policy through work at Frimhurst Family House in Surrey and their National Centre in London.

With programmes focused on supporting families and influencing policy, ATD Fourth World works in partnership with people affected by long-term poverty to develop their potential and enable them to participate fully in the life of their communities and society at large.

The Policy, Participation and Training Programme empowers people with experience of poverty to express their views and offer solutions to the problems affecting their lives while offering policymakers an invaluable insight into fighting poverty from the bottom up.

The Family Support Programme aims to act as a bridge between the most vulnerable and excluded families and professionals, giving both parties the time, space and resources to build positive and long-lasting relationships. In doing so, they seek to create the conditions that will allow parents, children and professionals to work together and learn from one another.
