Tackling Poverty Together.

Working with others to tackle poverty and inequality in Dundee.

Our Vision

We believe that all should be treated equally. We believe that we are stronger through listening and working together.

We believe that those who have lived experience of poverty should be given a voice and opportunities to lead, to influence real change.

We believe that the inequalities within our communities should be addressed  locally and nationally.

We believe that faith communities have an important role to play in tackling poverty.

Our Work

Partnership working is at the heart of all we do, because working together we can bring about real change.

Listening is at the heart of what we do, because the solutions are often already there but no-one has taken time to listen.

Believing is at the heart of what we do, because we believe our communities have the resources to make real transformative difference in the lives of the people around them.

Below are key areas of our work – working to improve fairness, working to help those going through food insecurity, and providing support to faith communities.

Fairness Work

We work with people with lived experience of poverty and inequality to create a platform where their voices are heard and can influence change at a local and national level.

Dignified Access to Food

As the lead of the Dundee Community Food Network, we bring together and support food projects from across the city to provide a coordinated response to food and financial insecurity.

Supporting Faith Communities

We provide one-to-one support for faith community projects, helping them to identify and respond to poverty and inequality within their communities

Cash First Approach

We deliver training and workshops to volunteers and frontline staff to embed Cash First Approaches – dignified ways of helping people know what support is available and how to access it
