SIGNAL is part of a Global Movement whose purpose is to eliminate poverty.

What Is Signal?

Poverty affects every person differently and SIGNAL is designed to enable individuals and households to assess their own circumstances and to carry out personalised strategies to overcome their specific challenges.

A Quick Introduction

SIGNAL is a tool which helps people identify their real needs while inspiring them to make the changes that are required to transform their lives.

At the same time, it enables organisations to gain clarity and respond more effectively to those needs in any environment.

SIGNAL is relevant to a wide range of organisations. We intend to share with you on a regular basis case studies from our partners, communities and households to showcase the impact that SIGNAL is having.


We have a poverty problem here in the U.K. For too long too many institutions and policy makers have considered poverty as a purely economic issue and have therefore overlooked its multi-dimensional complexity.

The problem is further compounded by their failure to see poverty through the eyes of those who experience it every day i.e. individuals and households.
