Briefing Document Launched 14th October 2021

In the winter of 2020 during lockdown, the Scaffolding Project (part of EastSide Partnership) engaged with five community forums in east Belfast to gain a greater understanding of poverty in the area and its impact on individuals, families and communities. It also wanted to learn more about what groups are doing on the ground to address poverty and what would assist them in addressing the impacts and cause of poverty.

As a result, a report has been developed outlining the findings from this engagement exercise.
