Fair by Design — why being poor costs more and how you can help tackle the ‘poverty premium’

Those who have less pay more — for energy, insurance, and finance. Being poor costs more. This is called the Poverty Premium. Fair by Design, the movement to tackle this poverty premium — the extra costs of being poor — is launching its campaigning arm today.

The campaign is based at The Barrow Cadbury Trust and is funded jointly by the Big Lottery Fund, Big Society Capital, Comic Relief, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Social Tech Trust and The Tudor Trust.

You can support the campaign by tweeting your choice of the sample tweets below and accompanying infographics:
