JFR Webinar: Poverty in Scotland 2023 online event

This year’s Challenge Poverty Week event from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation will cover the current state of poverty in Scotland, including progress towards meeting the Scottish Child Poverty targets, and the role of work in reducing poverty.

It will focus on drivers of in-work poverty in Scotland, including inequalities in the labour market, pay, hours and high costs. It highlights the need for immediate action across the Scottish economy, as well as highlighting different policy and practice needs within five high-priority industries. It also addresses the role of factors external to the labour market, particularly high, and rising, costs.
