Taxpayers Agains Poverty                         http://taxpayersagainstpoverty.org.uk/                  

We were founded with this letter in The Guardian on the 16th February 2012 by the Rev Paul Nicolson. TAP is not a charity but has registered as a not for profit company so we are publically accountable for our  income and expenditure. Not being a charity means we are free from the political restrictions of the Charity commission. We act without allegiance to any political party. The TAP constitution can be found here. The objects include; “The prevention or relief of poverty [or financial hardship] and the promotion of human rights as set out in Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and subsequent United Nations and European Conventions and Declarations in the United Kingdom by all or any of the following means.”  Article 25 of the UDHR covers economic and social rights.
