The Edinburgh Poverty Commission and the Poverty Alliance will be holding a community hearing with people who are struggling financially and living on a low income in Edinburgh. This will be an opportunity for the independent Edinburgh Poverty Commission to share the work they have been doing since November 2018 seeking to understand what drives one in five families in Edinburgh into poverty, listening to citizens who struggle to get by and making recommendations about changes that can be delivered.

This hearing will be attended by participants who have been taking part in research being conducted by the Poverty Alliance on experiences of poverty in Edinburgh who will be sharing their experiences with members of the Commission.

Attendance by invitation only.
