Training opportunities on poverty
GMPA is working in partnership with Policy North Training to provide training to organisations working to address poverty across the city region and the rest of the UK. We aim to support organisations to better understand some of the complexities around poverty and enable them to improve policy and practice as a result. Courses currently open to bookings are:
Our Maximising support for people on low incomes course will run on February 28th, April 28th and October 8th, 2020. This course is for VCSE and public sector organisations who work with people experiencing poverty and who wish to understand how to maximise support for their service users and those involved in service design and delivery.

The extremely popular Understanding poverty measurement, definitions and data course will run on March 12th and November 18th, 2020. This course is for organisations who wish to strengthen the case for their work by presenting accurate and relevant data about poverty to funders, supporters and policy and decision makers.

Our Exploring the Poverty Premium course is running on March 18th, 2020. Attendees on this half day course will be able to better understand the poverty premium, the way it affects customers, clients and consumers and how they can amend and ‘poverty proof’ their practices.

We aim to keep the cost of attending courses low, whilst looking to grow and develop our training offer and raise revenue for GMPA’s activities. All courses take place in central Manchester unless otherwise stated.
