Manchester’s ‘Family Poverty Strategy’ was refreshed in 2017 for the City as part of a wider stakeholder commitment to reducing inequality in Manchester.
Young Manchester’s Poverty Speaks Volumes project with the Webb Memorial Trust ensured that young people have a voice in their city.
Through the project, 4CT's Young People's Groups were commissioned to lead their own debate on the impact of poverty and devise solutions to reduce generational equality.
The project concluded in a film and a song, which they introduced at the Rethinking Poverty Event held on 4th December 2017.
