Tameside Poverty Action Group

The Poverty Action Group (PAG) is a place for Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) groups and partners to work collaboratively on issues we feel will help to alleviate poverty in Tameside.

The PAG will aim to meet quarterly to:

  • Share information
  • Share intelligence of what is really happening for people
  • Identify areas where collective action is needed and work on solutions
  • 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

We have agreed that the work we undertake has to be manageable, and so we will work on a few key priorities, rather than try to tackle everything at once.

​Our Poverty Action Group meetings are currently being held online and below are the dates for the year:
