Greater Manchester Poverty Report

I attach a report on a survey of poverty in Greater Manchester produced as part of  a partnership initiative between the Greater Manchester Poverty Action Group, the University of Manchester and the Diocese of Manchester.

The report has been produced as a follow up to a recommendation of the Greater Manchester Poverty Commission, and sits alongside a new online Poverty Monitor designed to resource community groups and anti-poverty activists in the area:

http://www.gmpag.org/poverty-in-gm-november-2014/

Both the report and the monitor have a distinct geographical focus, but the report findings and citizen social science methodology may be of interest to members of the SR network working on similar issues.  Everyone is free to share and use the report if at all helpful to your work – there are contact details for all organisations involved and I am happy to answer any questions if required.

Best wishes

Poverty Hearing

Revd David Primrose, Director of Transforming Communities, Lichfield Diocese writes:

We had our first poverty hearing ten days ago, with four partnerships of churches from areas of greater and lesser deprivation reporting back. There is a two minute video on:

www.lichfield.anglican.org/ournews/for-richer-for-poorer-hearing-stories-of-poverty-and-partnership/

The partnerships are continuing, and next year the Dean will be inviting us to Lichfield Cathedral on Saturday 13th June 2015.
