Event description

Description

The Poverty Alliance, in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council, have organised a networking event. This networking meeting is designed to bring together a range of local groups and organisations to discuss issues of key concern to the fight against poverty.

The event will focus on input to the Scottish Government's Social Security Charter. The Charter is an important part of the Social Security Bill currently going through the Scottish Parliament. The discussion will be led by staff from the Poverty Alliance. The event is an opportunity to discuss what the Charter should look like, what should be its key features, and how do we learn from experiences such as the Patients Charter.

At the end of the event we will have identified what we think should be key aspects of the Social Security Charter.

It will also be an opportunity to hear about progress being made in tackling poverty across Dumfries and Galloway. This will be led by a representative from Dumfries and Galloway Council.

The meeting will be participative, and focused on discussion, debate and on generating networking opportunities.

Who should attend?

The networking meetings are FREE and open to all groups and organisations that are concerned about poverty. Statutory agencies, local civil society organisations - community and voluntary organisations, trade union branches, faith groups – will all find the discussions useful.
