Join this online meeting to add your voice to the campaign to end poverty in Leeds.

Over the past 12 months an alliance of organisations, institutions and individuals has developed nationally under the banner ‘Let’s End Poverty’. They are united by a vision of a UK where poverty can’t keep anyone down believing that, for too long, poverty has trapped people and communities in hardship. In the medium term, it wants to place poverty on the political agenda during the election calling leaders to commit to tackling poverty.

Several people in Leeds wondered if this national initiative gave a good excuse to develop a Leeds-wide conversation ‘Let’s End Poverty in Leeds’. We recognise that organisations, institutions, faith groups, business and citizens within Leeds every day do many remarkable things to tackle poverty. The good people of Leeds are not short on supplies of compassion for those facing hardship. Neither are they unaware of the injustices that mean for some people and communities it is a struggle to survive let alone thrive. So, this conversation is not about starting something new because we are lacking people who care. Neither is it a way of controlling what everyone individually is saying and doing. Rather, it’s about bringing unusual and usual suspects to talk, think and feel together about how we might make Leeds a city where everyone thrives regardless of their bank balance or postcode.
