Led by Chris Hollins (VAL Chair) we are currently undertaking a piece of research called ‘How the Third Sector can help tackle Poverty  which will be carried out over the next few months – with the initial outcomes to be presented and discussed at the VAL AGM on 22nd September.

A primary reason we are carrying out this work is because many of the Third Sector Organisations we work with have identified ‘tackling poverty’ as the No. 1 priority for Leeds and have clear ideas on what the city should be doing to help address poverty, but these ideas need support to be further developed into coherent packages of activity. So this research will be very solutions focused and aims to lead to a number of proposals that can be discussed with strategic partners and potential funders.

The backbone of the work will be one-to-one interviews with local voluntary and community sector organisations and this online questionnaire – please take the time to discuss your ideas with us through one (or both) of these methods.

Please help us by taking a moment to answer a few questions for us -

Responses will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a free place on a VAL training course up to the value of £40.
