About this event


		Tameside Poverty Truth Commission Launch Event image

Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) invites you to the launch of the Tameside Poverty Truth Commission.

Poverty Truth Commissions are a unique and powerful way of developing new insights and initiatives to tackle poverty, taking place in over 15 towns and cities across the UK.

They are built on a principle of participatory decision-making to tackle poverty, in which people with lived experience of poverty build relationships with those in positions of influence. Working together over an extended period of time, they co-create meaningful and longer-term solutions and change. The key principle behind Poverty Truth Commissions is that decisions about poverty must involve people who directly face poverty.

The Tameside Poverty Truth Commission

With the support of a start-up group consisting of a variety of Tameside organisations, charities and businesses, GMPA has established the Tameside Poverty Truth Commission. For a number of months Grassroots commissioners, people with direct experiences of poverty, have been meeting together to explore what it means to live in poverty in Tameside. Civic and business leaders have been recruited to join the commission after the launch event. You can read more about the Tameside Poverty Truth Commission here.

This launch event is an opportunity for anyone working within, or with an interest in tackling poverty within Tameside, to hear these stories about the impact of poverty from people who we seek to serve. The event will be thought-provoking and challenging and demonstrate that while there are many incredible initiatives to tackle poverty in Tameside, there is still much to be done.

Once the launch event has been completed, the grassroots commissioners and civic and business leaders will start meeting regularly to build relationships with each other and identify issues that they would like to address collectively. After 12-18 months we will draw the project to a close and hold a closing event to share what we have collectively achieved.
