Edinburgh Poverty Commission wants submissions on poverty

People experiencing poverty in Edinburgh are being encouraged to share their stories of how the coronavirus outbreak is impacting on their lives.  The Chair of the Edinburgh Poverty Commission, which has been working since 2018 on solutions to put an end to poverty in the city, Jim McCormick has asked for anyone in financial hardship to share their experience.  The Commission is reaching out to hear about the experiences of people living in poverty in Edinburgh during the outbreak.  It is collecting information on the challenges people are facing and the solutions that need to be put in place to get through the months ahead.  They are also keen to learn about examples of compassion and kindness which are making a difference to people’s lives across the city.  These testimonials will be used to shape the short-term actions the city needs to put in place to address its problem.  You can send your thoughts by clicking here.
