Poverty Awareness Training

The Poverty Awareness Training course, which is KSF matched, is delivered by NHSWI and Citizens Advice Bureaux staff who draw heavily on their knowledge of poverty issues and on their direct experience of working with individuals and groups who are experiencing poverty.  This one-day course aims to

  • increase participants knowledge and understanding of the relationship between poverty and inequality and how poverty impacts on individuals lives,
  • enable participants to identify ways in which they can provide an effective service to people who experience poverty.

The course has been well attended each time it has been previously run with participants from the NHSWI, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Action for Children, Hebridean Housing Partnership and Tighean Innse Gall.
