About us

The Poverty Alliance has extensive experience conducting research on poverty and inequality. Our expertise includes:

  • Activity focusing on drawing out the policy and practice implications of the lived experience of poverty
  • Supporting community and peer-led research
  • Carrying out qualitative research on issues of poverty
  • Work on issues related to beliefs and attitudes about poverty

We specialise in participatory research, creative methods, evaluations, and conducting systematic reviews. We work with a range of organisations and academic partners, and have previously delivered projects for commissioners and funders such as the Scottish Government, the Robertson Trust, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Poverty and Inequality Commission.


With our policy and communications team at the Poverty Alliance, we use our research evidence to influence sharing our research with politicians, policy makers and practitioners in Scotland and the UK.

Work with us!

At the Poverty Alliance, we are always keen to work with others to provide evidence through our research. We also offer our expertise and advice to other projects and organisations.
