Giving Poverty a Voice

ATD Fourth World’s Giving Poverty a Voice project strives to support people experiencing poverty and inequality in London to engage and participate in their communities and have their say on the decisions that affect their lives.

Using issue-based discussion forums, capacity-building workshops and examinations of the different opportunities and avenues to participate in the democratic process, our aim is for Giving Poverty a Voice to empower and encourage people to stand up and be heard.

The project also seeks to build networks with grass roots and community organisations across the borough and the capital to strengthen the links between diverse experiences and perceptions of poverty as well as planning meetings with local and regional policy and decision makers.
