Church Urban Fund – The Web of Poverty

From Bethany Eckley, Research Manager

I thought I might forward to you Church Urban Fund’s latest policy paper: The Web of Poverty.

 This paper sets out our organisational understanding of poverty; what is it and how does it affect people’s lives?

 We find it helpful to think about poverty as a web of interlinked factors that together, have a significant impact on an individual’s ability to flourish. As such, we group the diverse aspects of poverty into three categories: poverty of resources, relationship and identity.

The paper also explains our approach to tackling poverty and how, through our Together Network, we seek to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised in England. It shows that our aim is to inform, inspire, resource and support churches as they work to tackle poverty and build strong, flourishing communities.

 If you would like any hard copies of this report, please let me know.

 Very best wishes,

Bethany
