A note from the organisers...

The organisers would very much value any personal experiences about how poverty is affecting you or your loved ones, especially regarding recent cuts and changes. 

We are keen to include the voices of as many women as possible in the event. So we'd encourage you to use this blog to write something, or to post anonymously. Alternatively, you could email us directly (confrontingpoverty@gmail.com). 

If you agreed, and only if you agreed, we might be able to read out (or you could) something of what you write at the event. 

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Charlotte (on behalf of the organising group)
