Poverty Reference Group

We will soon be launching a new Poverty Reference Group (PRG) for Greater Manchester.

Building upon a previous group to influence the Greater Manchester Independent Inequalities Commission, the PRG will bring together a diverse group of people with lived experience of poverty from across the city-region, to create a sustainable mechanism for influencing local decision-making.

People living in poverty or who have lived in poverty bring unique insights to systems that affect their lives.

The group will build positive relationships with key stakeholders across all sectors, including the existing Equalities Panels, to ensure that the voices of people with lived experience of poverty are heard across relevant organisations, forums and networks.

If you would like to know more about the Poverty Reference Group, please contact Daniel Oliver on daniel@resolvepoverty.org.
