Research has shown that many people living in areas of high deprivation or on low incomes are also subject to the ‘Poverty Premium’, where they are paying higher rates for goods and services.
Over the coming months the APPG on Poverty will hold an into how businesses and others can help tackle the poverty premium. We are launching the inquiry in Parliament on 12 December and would like to welcome researchers, academics, business representatives and others who are interested in exploring ways in which the poverty premium can be addressed
The meeting will hear from Sara Davies, Research Fellow at the Personal Finance Research Centre, University of Bristol.
This meeting will be preceded by an EGM to elect further parliamentary officers to the APPG on Poverty.
