Thank you to Roger Kaye for his song in support of the Poverty Truth Commission

Written by Denise Flintoft

What is a Poverty Truth Commission?

‘Nothing about us, without us, is for us,’ is the ethos of every Poverty Truth Commission. The idea is simple; that lasting social change only happens when those who experience the struggle participate in generating that change.

A Poverty Truth Commission begins by putting those with direct experience of poverty first, and asking them to share their knowledge about what’s truly needed to make change. These people are known as Community commissions who build strong connections with Civic commissioners, who are local leaders in the city on many of the services and decisions which affect people's lives.

Please listen to Roger's song that he has written around our ethos.

Thank you Roger.
