Child poverty is the biggest human rights issue facing children and young people in Scotland. Bringing together voices from academia, campaigning organisations and the third sector we'll explore some of the ways in which poverty infringes on the rights of children and families across Scotland, and practical ways we can empower our communities to resist it.

Chaired by the Children and Young People’s Commissioner, this event will combine both academic and practice-based knowledge; attendees will learn about recent research whilst also developing practical tools that can improve the material circumstances of those experiencing poverty. Featuring workshops from Power To The People, My Bnk, Includem, South Lanarkshire Council, Living Rent and Aberlour. 

Free to attend, with tea, coffee and a light lunch provided.

Benefits of attending
