Greater Manchester Poverty Action

These programmes are designed to boost household incomes and financial resilience, and/or to ensure that those living in or affected by poverty are involved in reducing and preventing it.

Dan is passionate about communities leading change and is keen to explore how we embed lived experience in decision-making processes across Greater Manchester. He has led other lived experience programmes and is passionate about bringing people and networks together to share power and create positive change.
