What is Poverty in the UK?

A series of flash talks about the challenges of living in poverty in the UK from frontline organisations.

Since the financial crisis and subsequent government cuts, we’ve heard more and more about the rise of poverty and inequality in the UK. But what does it actually mean to live in poverty in the UK?

Join us on Wednesday 3 February 2016 from 6:30pm in Central London for a series of flash talks from organisations that work on the frontline and help some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our society. You will be able to hear about the challenges and struggles that people living in poverty face on a daily basis, and the crucial support provided to them by these organisations.

Doors will open at 6:30pm and we will start promptly at 7:00pm. This event will take place at Regent Hall, 275 Oxford St, London W1C 2DJ.

Tickets cost £5 plus booking fees and can be booked here: https://whatispovertyintheuk.eventbrite.co.uk/
