Vacancy: Tameside Poverty Truth Commission Facilitator
We are recruiting a facilitator for the Tameside Poverty Truth Commission.
Poverty Truth Commissions (PTCs) create a space to meaningfully bring together people with different experiences, knowledge, and power: Within this space, people who have had experience of living in poverty come together with senior civic, political and business leaders on an equal footing. They have the power to create positive change around poverty and inequality. Greater Manchester Poverty Action aims to launch the Tameside Poverty Truth Commission at the start of 2021.
The term of this contract is for the start-up stage of the Commission: this facilitator will be the first of a team of three, with the others to join the team when the necessary funding is secured. The role of this facilitator in the first year will be to recruit commissioners, facilitate meetings in preparation for the launch of the Commission, and seek sufficient funds to complete the team and launch the Commission.
Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) is a not-for-profit organisation that works to address poverty across Greater Manchester. Our vision is of a Greater Manchester free from poverty where all residents can realise their potential and access the benefits of living in a diverse and vibrant city region.
