Who We Are

The Poverty Alliance is a network of individuals and organisations across Scotland working together to combat poverty. 

What we believe

Our vision is of a sustainable Scotland based on social and economic justice, with dignity for all, where poverty and inequalities are not tolerated and are challenged.

Our aim is to combat poverty by working with others to empower individuals and communities to affect change in the distribution of power and resources.

Our Priorities

We focus our activities in four areas:

  • Tackling low incomes
  • Improving services 
  • Supporting participation
  • Influencing attitudes to poverty
