Description

'Save the Date' for our next Thrive Trafford VCSE Sector Strategic Engagement Event on Wednesday 16th October 2019.

The next Thrive Trafford VCSE Sector Engagement Event will focus on the development of a Trafford Poverty Strategy.

Date: Wednesday 16th October 2019

Time: 1:00pm to 3:00pm (Registration from 12:45pm)

Venue: Flixton House, Flixton Road, Urmston M41 5GJ

Trafford Council are currently developing a Poverty Strategy for Trafford and would like to engage with local voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations working directly with residents living in poverty to help co-produce a Poverty Strategy for Trafford that meets local needs.

Poverty has been defined as “When someone doesn’t have access to material resources, and so can’t meet their own or their family’s basic needs, including nutritional food, warm housing, clothing, warmth, shelter and participating in social activities.”

Trafford is currently developing a Poverty Strategy to tackle this issue. The strategy has two major aims:

• To alleviate the effects of poverty
• To prevent people from falling into poverty in the first place

To alleviate the effects of poverty, key themes have been identified for the emerging Strategy:

• Childcare and Child Poverty
• Council Tax and Council Services
• Debt and Credit
• Poverty Premium
• Food Poverty
• Homelessness
• Carers
• Period Poverty

The Trafford VCSE Sector Strategic Engagement Event will provide an opportunity for the sector working alongside a range of partners and agencies to inform the strategy, particularly dealing with the immediate effects of poverty.

Poverty affects all sectors, and we need your help in coordinating an approach to addressing it.
