Posted on 10th February, 2016 by Lincoln Against Poverty
Sixty delegates from thirty three organisations are attending the Lincoln Against Poverty Workshop today at The Showroom in Lincoln. The day will celebrate the success partners have made contributing to the Lincoln Anti-Poverty Strategy to date, and explore what we can do further, as a partnership, to mitigate the short to medium term effects of poverty.
The first Lincoln Against Poverty event took place in February 2014, when more than 120 delegates attended a Conference to learn about the new Lincoln Anti-Poverty Strategy, and develop a one year Action Plan to help tackle further the short to medium term effects of poverty. A further Conference involving more than 120 delegates took place in February 2015 to review activity in the first year’s Action Plan, and identify actions for a new two year Action Plan (the Lincoln Anti-Poverty Action Plan 2015/16-2016/17).
Whilst the current 2015/16-2016/17 Action Plan is only halfway through its lifespan, with 36 projects delivered already, and a further 34 possible actions for next year, this smaller interim workshop provides the ideal opportunity for partners to come together to identify how the first year of delivery has gone, and firm up some of the actions for delivery over the next 12 months.
