Dignity for All: come together to end UK poverty

Come together with us to strengthen the movement to end UK poverty. An event led by the real experts – people with experience of poverty.

Saturday 10 June 2023
Gateway Church, central Leeds

At this day-long conference, we’ll come together to build new relationships, listen and learn from each other about how we can end poverty in the UK. Then, we’ll plan how we can take action together to reclaim dignity, agency and power.

Our aim is to particularly build links between activists who are based in churches and other organisations and campaigners with lived experience of poverty. By working together, we can do so much more to move towards a UK where everyone can thrive.

Join us for panel discussions, workshops and networking. The conference is being planned and promoted by the APLE CollectiveChurch Action on Poverty, and the Joint Public Issues Team. Many other partners will present workshops and lead discussions.
