The Poverty Alliance Group (http://www.povertyalliance.org/) are seeking individuals in the Central Fife area to get involved in a new initiative that will help influence the big priorities in the local areas.
Initially the project will be providing training opportunities on the 20th and 27th November for anyone that is interested in being involved.
The Poverty Alliance Group are looking for anybody with experience of:
- Being a Lone Parent
- Fuel Poverty
- Mental Health Problems
- Low-Paid or Part-Time Work
- Money Worries
Initially, a 2 day training session will be held at Lochgelly Centre on the 20th November and the 27th November, which will look at poverty and inequality issues in the local areas of; Cowdenbeath, Kelty, Lochgelly, Benarty and Cardenden. The training sessions will also show you how to use your own experience to change things.
Travel and childcare expenses are covered and times can fit in with school hours.
After the training sessions a Stakeholder Group will be formed to examine the priorities of the Cowdenbeath Local Community Plan, which will then form part of a larger group, made up of community members, statutory bodies such as Fife Council and NHS Fife, and local voluntary organisations. Support is provided throughout the process.
If you are interested in taking part, or would like to get involved but cannot at this time, further opportunities will be provided in the New Year.
