Event Details

Poverty is no laughing matter

You are cordially invited to the

Launch of Manchester Poverty Truth Commission

'Nothing About Us Without Us is For Us.'

Sponsored by Councillor Sue Murphy, Deputy Leader, Manchester City Council and Dr Ruth Bromley, Chair, Manchester Health and Care Commissioning

The Poverty Truth Commission is a unique process is based on the conviction that we cannot hope to understand, let alone address, the causes and symptoms of poverty unless we involve the experts. In this context, the experts are those who have a direct experience of poverty; living with the reality day in and day out.

The approach is founded on the belief real progress towards overcoming poverty will be made when those who experience poverty are central to the development, delivery and evaluation of solutions. Unlike many other Commission processes, a key to its success is recruiting both commissioners with direct experience of poverty and commissioners in positions of influence locally and enabling them to have the opportunity to enter into real dialogue on the issues which come up.

The launch will include hearing from some of the 15 'grassroots' members of the Commission, and an introduction to the 15 civic and business leaders who will join them as members of the Commission for the next 15 months.

Come prepared to hear some challenging and inspiring truths about poverty in Manchester...
