About Lincoln Against Poverty

In July 2013, the council’s Community Leadership Scrutiny Committee began looking at poverty in Lincoln. In the midst of the largest recession in 100 years, combined with the biggest changes to benefits in more than 60 years, this review was timely.

The review culminated in the Lincoln Poverty Conference 2014, where more than 100 delegates from dozens of partner organisations across the city came together to plan a way forward. From the Conference, more than 100 actions were suggested by partners, many of which formed the Lincoln Anti Poverty Action Plan.

Under the banner of ‘Lincoln Against Poverty’, we are now working together to deliver the Anti Poverty Action Plan for the city. If you would like to be involved, or want more information on the work we are doing, please visit the ‘Contact Us’ part of this website, and get in touch.
