Oldham Poverty Action Group meeting

 Registration is closed for this event
The Poverty Action Group meets with the overall aim to reduce the impact of poverty on the most vulnerable people in the borough of Oldham and in doing so support individuals, families and communities to move from poverty to financial inclusion.

The Poverty Action Group (PAG) is made up of representatives from the Voluntary, Community, Faith, Social Enterprise (VCFSE), Statutory, Public, Business and Private sector. All contributors are welcome. It is co-ordinated and serviced by Action Together and the work undertaken has to reflect the capacity of all those involved. The focus of the work is on the various districts across the borough.  PAG links in with key decision-making bodies in Oldham, as well as regional & national initiatives where appropriate. The majority of the work is carried out at PAG meetings and through the email group. Members give resources in time and ‘kind’ e.g. venues for meetings. Key objectives are:

  • Share information through meetings, the email group and events in order to best equip voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) groups to meet their own priorities
  • Collect intelligence of what is really happening for people
  • Recognise that poverty is an issue in all communities
  • Identify areas where collective action is needed and suggest solutions
  • Campaign where appropriate for changes that effect the most vulnerable people
  • Link in to appropriate statutory bodies and in order to highlight issues, look for solutions in partnership and have an impact
  • Link in with Greater Manchester organisations that are tackling poverty in order to gain a broader perspective and learn about possible solutions
  • Work closely with the Cooperative Council agenda to ensure that poverty across the borough is addressed
  • Offer a supportive environment for all those involved by sharing experiences, identifying problems and solutions
