Supporting Families in Crisis – WEBINAR

October 6, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

Talking about poverty and inequalities can be challenging this session will aim to give delegates some more confidence around this subject to encourage discussion.

The session aims that delegates will have a better understanding on the hidden costs of the school day and how staff can play an important role in helping and supporting families who are experiencing financial difficulties.

A newly developed financial toolkit will be shared during the webinar to allow front line staff to make and track their referrals.

The Poverty Alliance will be sharing good practice on how to encourage discussions around poverty and low income they will also share their work around “framing poverty” which shares public attitudes towards poverty and shares recommendations on how to talk about poverty in a way that reduces the stigmatising views that people have towards people living on low incomes and helps people see the ways in which society creates and sustains poverty
