The Poverty Costs team has been working hard at developing a community engagement strategy to provide people with a lived experience of poverty with the opportunity to have their voice heard as the Advisory Group on Poverty Reduction moves forward with their recommendations for the province’s poverty reduction strategy. Working separately from the Advisory Group, Poverty Costs has developed a kit for organizations working with people who are experiencing, or have experienced poverty. We’re asking organizations across the province to gather the voices of their community in one of two ways. Either through a facilitated group discussion or through an individual survey on poverty and poverty reduction in Saskatchewan. The information gathered will be kept anonymous and will be summarized by the Poverty Costs team and submitted to the Advisory Group on Poverty Reduction. The report will also be made available to the organizations taking part and the public.
If your organization works with people with a lived experience of poverty and would like to either facilitate a group discussion or disseminate a survey please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to share the kit and support you as best we can.
If you or your organization would like to submit feedback directly to the Advisory Group on Poverty Reduction you will be able to do so online. When available, there will be a link provided here as well as an updated email address of who to connect with for any questions directly related to the work the Advisory Group is undertaking.
Thanks for your continued support - Together we can create a better plan that will benefit us all!
