As less and less is being publically invested in the mechanisms that prevent families from being pulled into the current of poverty, many are turning to London’s Voluntary Sector – small, locally focused charities with their wealth of experience, compassion and expertise – to help them keep their heads above water.

The event will include a presentation of the research, some good practice examples, a response from Deputy Mayor Matthew Ryder QC and an audience of representatives of local authorities, funders and VCS organisations that are tackling or dealing with the effects of low income and poverty in London.

Come and join us for a celebration of the strength and breadth of the response of the VCS across the capital.
