Our events programme will spotlight people’s experiences of poverty; their hopes, fears and expectations for a post-Brexit Britain; and highlight new policy ideas that are as relevant for local agencies and activists as they are for politicians and officials. We will hold focused fringe meetings at the party conferences, be hosting regional roundtables and working with multiple partners across the political spectrum.
We are also following up on the success of our recent Campaigning for Change conference.
Framing: Campaigning for Change
Our sold-out Campaigning for Change conference held 6th February 2019 brought together a brilliant mix of campaigners and communicators to collaborate and tell a new story about poverty in the UK.
The Framing Game was great, as were the workshops. The whole day was fantastic and very inspiring.
It was fascinating hearing about the work that JRF has done (with the Frameworks institute), taking attendees through how to use framing language when communicating about poverty, especially from those with lived experience – often an overlooked part of many charity events.
Loved the creative workshop - visualising the problems/solutions. I feel it is a fantastic thing to bring back and do with my team here to really challenge them to think about the issue in different ways!
Building on the success of the conference, we’ve been keeping up momentum by meeting a wide range of teams who want to put their new learning into action where they work. We’ve also put together a helpful toolkit to help others to communicate effectively about poverty. It’s free to download: Framing toolkit: Talking about poverty
