For this #WednesdayWeekly on 14 April we’re fortunate to be joined by Camille Furtado, Campaigns Manager at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). This session will be especially useful for groups and individuals involved in campaigning, advocacy and awareness work to think about how your efforts can have the biggest impact.
Camille leads on this area of work with JRF, supporting grassroots groups to use their voices to challenge issues of poverty and inequality in the UK. She’ll be providing a taster session of JRF’s Talking About Poverty training (more info here). This 3x3hour workshop programme has been developed with people with direct experience of poverty for people with lived experience to enable them to raise their voices in ways that are safe, empowering and impactful. She’ll give an outline how this can be achieved through the concept of framing, examples of its effectiveness, and how we can best talk about poverty in the current pandemic.
There will be time for comments and discussion and Camille is keen to hear about what poverty related issues are being addressed in Rochdale, Oldham and Tameside. She will also share opportunities to work in more depth with the JRF for yourselves or people you work with.
