Current inquiry: Poverty-related stigma
In January 2022, the Cross-Party Group (CPG) on Poverty launched an inquiry into the relationship between poverty and stigma; seeking to better understand the causes, impacts of and solutions to poverty-related stigma.
To inform the inquiry, the group have launched a call for written evidence, inviting individuals and organisations from across Scotland to submit their views and to help shape the inquiry’s final report, which will be published in May 2022.
The call for written evidence can be read in full here: CPG on Poverty – stigma inquiry – call for views.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm, Friday 11th March. Please send your submission to email@example.com
