Current Projects


Employers who are paying the living wage deserve recognition for their commitment to decent wages. Living Wage Scotland aims to promote the accreditation scheme to employers in Scotland. The Initaitive, which is funded by the Scottish Government and delivered in partnership with the Living Wage Foundation, provides support and guidance to employers who wish to make the move to become accreditated and will help publicise their commitment.

The RE-InVEST project is a collaboration between a wide range of organisations across Europe who share desire to contribute to an EU that is based on solidary and inclusion, through an inclusive, powerful and effective social investment strategy at EU level. Moreover, the project itself adopts a participative approach that involves the voices of vulnerable groups and civil society organisations.

The project is being co-ordinated by Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium and involves representatives from 13 countries across Europe. The Poverty Alliance is involved in a number of work packages, particularly on particiaptory research, on the social damage of economic crisis and minimum standards in service markets. Our role is to engage people with experience fo poverty in the research process in Scotland. 

Re-InVEST started in March 2015 and will carry on until March 2019. Regular updates and policy papers will be available throughout the project via the project website. For more information visit:
