Why you should attend

Poverty affects 1 in 4 people in Wales, and has a profound impact on people’s life chances, from education to health to housing. With poverty forecast to increase in the next few years, organisations of all kinds need to plan for its impact and consider what they can do to help reduce poverty.

What you will learn

This is an interactive session with a mix of talks, discussion and practical tasks. It will include:

  • What people mean by ‘poverty’
  • Poverty in your area
  • The causes and consequences of poverty
  • Proven actions that make a difference.

Cost

The cost is very affordable and includes all course materials and tea/coffees. There are a limited number of places – if there is sufficient demand we will run another course in the morning.  All fees include VAT. Please book below.
