Speaking out against poverty

Speaking out against poverty


Written by: IRR News Team

On 6 December at Westminster Central hall, National Poverty Hearings will take place – an opportunity for those suffering from the effects of destitution to speak to those who can do something.

The hearings first took place ten years ago and will now examine the changes in poverty since the 1996. The event will be attended by politicians and policy makers and has been organised by Church Action on Poverty in partnership with organisations including Shelter and Help the Aged, Church Urban Fund, End Child Poverty, Barnardos, Oxfam, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Refugee Council. Those experiencing poverty will address themed sessions organised by sponsoring organisations and the ‘evidence’ will set the campaigning agenda for the coalition of organisations taking part.
