Reflections on GMPA’s Cost-of-living Crisis Conference
A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Cost-of-living Crisis Conference on October 20th at St Thomas Centre.
We were excited by the passion in the room for cash first responses to poverty and the need to ensure we are doing everything we can locally to maximise household incomes.
Particular thanks to our speakers, many of whom travelled from outside of Greater Manchester to be with us. A number of speakers commented on the value of bringing stakeholders together in this way and would like to replicate the approach in their area!
We’ve had lots of positive feedback on the conference and a number complimentary comments:
We have been following up directly with speakers and delegates since the conference. The event provided a good chance for people to meet with members of our team in-person for the first time. As always, do reach out to relevant members of the GMPA staff team if there are areas of work we can support you with and/or opportunities for partnership working.
Since the conference took place we have added many of the presentation slides to the website pages alongside the biographies of the speakers and information about their organisations.
