Civil Society and Poverty: New Statesman Annual Supplement Launch May 6th
Many of the¬†actors that have the potential to address poverty¬†are in¬†serious retreat in 2014. Local authorities face year on year cuts and¬†the voluntary sector is in survivalist mode.
There is broad cross¬†party agreement that the state cannot do all the heavy lifting when it comes to reducing poverty. So what is the¬†potential for civil society to step in to address the current absence of agency on the anti poverty agenda?
The Webb Memorial Trust¬†will be¬†launching¬†its annual New Statesman anti-poverty supplement on¬†May 6th 2014 when a new report into Civil Society and¬†Poverty will be launched by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Poverty.¬†
