At the next Third Sector Leeds workshop (7 March 2019 | 2.00pm - 4.15pm) there will 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.
Our confirmed speakers so far are as follows:
Dave Roberts, Financial Inclusion Manager, Leeds City Council will talk about the changing context of financial inclusion in Leeds 2004, 2010 & 2018 and give an update on activity that’s taking place in Leeds to address financial exclusion.
Dave Paterson, Unity in Poverty Action/Leeds Food Aid will give a ‘view from the ground’ about the work they are doing to help to reduce financial exclusion in the city.
Amelia Gunn, Service Improvement Officer (Children & Families) Leeds City Council will give an update on the key features of the new cities’ new Child Poverty Strategy and discuss ways that the third sector can get involved.
