Description

Poverty Sensitive Practice

The Dundee Partnership Fairness Strategy challenges poverty and promotes social inclusion. Changes over recent years to Welfare Reform have brought new challenges and require different ways of thinking to support people into employment and enable them to survive and thrive on a limited income.

The Poverty and Stigma session aims to explore with participants the experience of people living in poverty so that they begin to make the link between how services are delivered and feelings of stigma and exclusion. For service users, these feelings may impact on the accessibility of services or feelings of being judged for requiring services. This training session is delivered as a partnership between the Community Health and Welfare Right teams. The Learning outcomes are:

  • Raise awareness of poverty, including in-work poverty

  • Reduce the stigma associated with living in poverty

  • Support poverty and inequalities sensitive practice

  • Raise awareness of how to signpost people in poverty to sources of support

Parking

Pay & display parking is available at near-by car parks.
