Stamp Out Poverty campaigns for new sources of finance for public services, global development and tackling climate change.

We campaign for the Climate Damages Tax, calling on the fossil fuel industry to pay for the damage caused to vulnerable countries by climate change.

We also campaign for the Financial Transactions Tax (FTT) – popularly known as the Robin Hood Tax – a small tax on transactions by financial organisations that would raise billions each year to tackle poverty and climate change at home and abroad, whilst also reducing the casino-like behaviour of the banking sector.
