Anti Poverty Strategy

The need for an Anti-Poverty Strategy has been recognised as a priority for the work programme of the Housing Services’ Strategic Unit for 2017-2018 and is driven by the 2017-22 Corporate Plan which notes the need to:

  • Create conditions which enable everyone to fulfil their long term potential
  • Support vulnerable adults and families and keep them safe, healthy and as independent as possible
  • Work in partnership with our communities to enable them to cope effectively with changes and developments while protecting our natural environment

In response to the above this Strategy is presented to achieve:

  • An agreement on a corporate definition of poverty
  • Raise awareness and set a baseline of activities within Services and with partners
  • Develop a method of measuring the effect of Services on dealing with poverty within our communities
