In 2021, North Ayrshire Council created a social media video and other updates, showing how the council takes a Community Wealth Building approach to challenging poverty in its communities.

Among the actions highlighted were:

  • a £500k Cost of the School Day initiative aimed directly at supporting vulnerable parents and their children.
  • school uniform recycling stations, where items can be swapped, bought for a reduced price or obtained for free.
  • a network of community larders, providing food support to those who need it
  • a £5million sustainability and affordable warmth fund to improve homes
