Help us transform the lives of our brothers and sisters living in poverty overseas by choosing a different sort of challenge in 2020.

Speak up to your MP

In 2020, use the power of your pen (or your keyboard). Resolve to write three letters a year to your MP, with our support and briefing, and you will help to bring about real, political change that can tackle poverty and injustice worldwide.

It really works. MP correspondents have helped secure tough laws to tackle climate change, and protected UK spending on life-saving overseas aid.

A resolution to make a lasting difference

Have you been meaning to write your will for a while? Many people say it's been on the to-do list for months, if not years!

This New Year why not use CAFOD’s free will service? By including a gift to CAFOD, you can share your blessings with families around the world too.

Include CAFOD in your will
