About us

Stop the Squeeze is a coalition campaign which aims to build support for bolder solutions to the cost of living crisis.

We believe the UK is facing this scale of crisis because of decisions made by the politicians in the driving seat of our economy, and that those politicians have the power to make different, better policy choices now.

Solutions exist that can help people through the immediate crisis and address the structural problems with our economy that have led us here.

We aim to demonstrate that these bolder, progressive solutions are necessary, feasible, credible, and popular.

The campaign is led by a core steering group of three organisations: the Economic Change Unit, Tax Justice UK, and the New Economics Foundation. It is supported by a coalition of civil society organisations, trade unions, and grassroots groups. See here for the current list of supporting organisations.
