Want to find out how you can help stop the tax dodgers? | ActionAid UK

Eva Watkinson

Campaigns Engagement Manager

Four out of five of us here in the UK think that tax avoidance by big companies, whilst legal, is wrong, and that political parties should be doing more to tackle it. If you want to be part of making that happen - then now's your chance.

In the new year we're running training events up and down the UK where you can find out more, learn new skills and meet other people in your area to help step up the campaign.

We all pay our tax. But companies like Amazon, Google and Starbucks can get away without paying their fair share.

Every year the UK loses billions of pounds, while developing countries lose an estimated $160 billion a year from corporate tax dodging. This is money which could be spent on tackling poverty, at home and abroad.

Campaigners have been taking action up and down the UK as part of our Towns Against Tax Dodging campaign, but next year we want to take the campaign to the next level.

We’re putting on events up and down the UK where you can get a sneak preview of our newest campaign, find out more about how you can stop the tax dodgers in their tracks and meet other ActionAid supporters in your area.
