Get Heard Scotland Discussion hosted by SMN
29 November 2019 at Brunswick House, 51 Wilson Street, Glasgow, G1 1UZ
The Poverty Alliance's Get Heard Scotland initiative, funded by the Scottish Government, aims to ensure that people experiencing poverty (and the organisations that work with them) can have their say in anti-poverty policy-making in Scotland with particular emphasis on Child Poverty Delivery Plans (Every Child Every Chance).
Through running community discussions across Scotland, the initiative focuses on what's working, what's not, and what needs to change to better prevent and reduce child poverty in Scotland. All evidence generated by these discussions are fed directly into both the Scottish Government and local authorities to help inform their decision-making on the targets set by Scottish Ministers to significantly reduce child poverty by 2030.
This year, the Poverty Alliance are working with a range of partners to cascade the Get Heard Scotland conversations across the country working in partnership with a range of stakeholders. The sessions run for at least 2 hours are a mixture of short presentations and discussions in smaller groups. This discussions offers a fantastic opportunity for front line workers and the people they work with to have their voices heard in national policy.
SMN are hosting a conversation at our offices on the 29th of November 2019, starting at 10:30am. Refreshments will be made available. This event is free to members of Scottish Mentoring Network and colleagues, however places are limited so please do ensure you register before you come.
