The Community Activist Panel is made up of people from across the city and is hosted by our staff. It supports the work of Glasgow City Council’s Poverty Leadership Panel, which includes agencies such as The Federation of Small Business, The Poverty Alliance and Glasgow City Council. The members of CAP have each experienced poverty, and, in many cases, their daily lives are affected by carer responsibilities, mobility issues, benefits and housing concerns. These 15 people meet to discuss the issues that are driving poverty in their communities, and how, together, Glasgow can address them.
The spring edition of the CAP newsletter, with latest updates of how to get involved, will be published week beginning 25 February and will be available here along with previous issues.
