Challenge Poverty Week is just around the corner, with events taking place in Scotland this week and then across England and Wales from 11th to 17th October. Challenge Poverty Week is an opportunity for us all to say what needs to change after Covid to enable our own communities to thrive.
At GMPA we are pleased to be supporting the Greater Manchester Big Poverty Conversation on October 11th, 2021 alongside the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Church Action on Poverty . At the event we will hear from local leaders, service providers and people with lived experience of poverty on local responses to poverty. This event will provide a platform to:
• Showcase what is already being done at community level to challenge and alleviate poverty.
• To change the conversation around poverty .
• Help end the stigma by building awareness and support for sustainable responses to the pandemic that focus on enhancing the dignity and agency of people in poverty.
The event is being held in the centre of Manchester and will start with lunch at 12.15pm and close at 3pm. For full details, and to book your place, click here.
