Poverty Alliance Annual Conference 2017

19th October 2017
Time: 9:00-17:00
Location: The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, G2 3NY

Campaigning for Change: Learning from the Past to Shape the Future is this year's annual conference of the Poverty Alliance, Scotland's anti-poverty network. The organisation will mark its 25th anniversary.

Over this time, the Poverty Alliance have campaigned and lobbied on a wide range of issues - from fuel poverty and food insecurity, to benefit cuts and decent pay. Unfortunately, many of the issues that were with us in 1992 remain with us now, despite some of our best efforts. We have seen important changes, but some of those changes have been rolled back and are under real threat again. The economic instability that has come about because of our impending departure from the EU, as well as continuing cuts to social protection means that poverty is likely to increase over the next five years. In this context, it is more important than ever that we make the right choices about what we seek to change, and how we go about making that change.
