Poverty Premium Inquiry written submissions now available to view
In December 2017, the APPG on Poverty launched an inquiry into the poverty premium in order to understand the extent of the premium and to make recommendations for policymakers and business to alleviate or eradicate it.
Six evidence sessions were held in Westminster throughout 2018, bringing together a variety of stakeholders to contribute evidence to the inquiry. The APPG also received written evidence from 19 businesses and organisations working in the voluntary sector, in addition to 24 members of the public who completed an online questionnaire open from December 2017 to May 2018.
The following submissions from organisations and individuals are now publicly available to view:
- Citizens Advice Scotland
- End Child Poverty
- Greater Manchester Poverty Action

- Money and Mental Health Policy Institute

- Responsible Finance
- Social Market Foundation
- Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT) and Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)

The findings and recommendations of the inquiry report are currently being drawn together from the evidence provided to us, and will be released in the coming months.
