Edinburgh Poverty Commission Survey

The Edinburgh Poverty CommissionEdinburgh Poverty Commission is working throughout this year to define the steps the city needs to make to reduce, mitigate, and prevent poverty in Edinburgh.

In the first phase of the work they gathered evidence and heard people’s experiences around the theme of ‘Pockets’ -  the pressures that keep incomes low and living costs high for people in Edinburgh.  The findings they received from that work are now published and available for comment and feedback.

In the second phase of the work, they are focusing on the theme of ‘Prospects’ – what they can do to improve the life chances of people who are experiencing poverty and low income.  To help them, they want to hear from individuals and organisations across the city who have experience of living with or supporting people facing these issues. 

They want to hear your thoughts on how poverty affects people’s lives and opportunities. They also want to hear about ways the city can do more to reduce those impacts, and improve life chances for people struggling to get by in Edinburgh.

So they are issuing a second ‘call for evidence’ with four questions to which they are seeking responses.

They ask you to give them your thoughts and responses to these questions, either using the form attached or by visiting their consultation pages.
