Aberdeenshire Third Sector Week
Aberdeenshire Third Sector Week: Tackling Poverty & Equalities and Additional Support Needs
Poverty is much more than just low income. Factors that generate poverty are wide-ranging and cover many aspects of day-to-day life such as health, housing, educational attainment, employability, and access to services. Today we hear from Daniels Place and The Haven; two community foodbanks that provide users so much more than just access to food.
You can also view the second of our five Grow Your Group presentations: Getting Things Right for an Application.
