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 meeting will be participative, and focused on discussion and on generating networking opportunities to tackle poverty in general as well as around key issues. The meeting will be small scale to allow time for discussion and debate.

At the end of the event we will have an improved understanding of key poverty issues in Scotland, improved sharing and networking and identified ways to work together at both the local & national levels
