It’s a cruel truth that if you’re poor it’s more difficult, and it costs you more, to get access to the financial services loans that can see you over the difficult times. It’s an even crueler truth that the effects of poverty can reverberate through the generations effecting children and young people in different ways to their parents.

At this Third Sector Leeds workshop for people from third sector organisations, there’ll be an opportunity to find out about a recent report from Leeds City Council which looked at how well the people of Leeds are financial included and how things have changed over time since similar reports in 2004 and 2010. We’ll also get views from a third sector organisation that is on the ground helping to address money worries.

In the second part of our session we are working with Young Lives Leeds to explore the brand new city Child Poverty Strategy which aims to reduce the negative impacts of poverty on children and young people across a wide range of different areas of work.

Of course, there’ll be plenty of opportunity for participants to discuss what they’ve learnt, to come up with ideas for making a positive difference and generating the asks that Third Sector Leeds can take back to city partners.
