Zacchaeus 2000 Trust (also known as Z2K) is an advice and campaigning charity working across London to solve problems within the social security and welfare benefits system.

Casework and Advice

We provide free advice and support for people across London on issues such as debt, homelessness and disability benefits.

Every year we help hundreds of people to deal with their benefits and housing issues. We address gaps in service provision to make sure we are giving support to people who struggle to get advice elsewhere.

For more information on how we can support you, please have a look at the ‘Help and Advice’ pages on the menu above.

Policy and Campaigning

We campaign for change to improvement government policies relating to poverty and welfare at local and national levels. Our campaigns build on our evidence-based policy research and target injustice at all levels of the social security system.

We regularly publish reports and formal responses to government consultations on issues such as disability benefits, housing and homelessness and support for low-income residents. While we maintain a London focus in both our casework and campaigns, our policy team also work for improvements at a national scale.

We also partner with other organisations to achieve coordinated policy change, as a member of the End Child Poverty Coalition, the Taking Control group and the London Child Poverty Alliance.
