UAA in support of “Poverty in Northampton” report:
UAA has been a key partner in the Hope Centre “Poverty in Northampton” research report. The report was led by Bishop Andrew Proud on behalf of Hope and written by Emma Matthews, who carried out the fieldwork with Bishop Proud, and with support from Robin Burgess, CEO of Hope. The report This review sought to fulfill two key purposes:
  1. To inform Hope’s work and to identify priorities for new projects as we move forward from the first impact of the pandemic, and
  2. To offer recommendations to our partners and other organisations as to local need, including other anti-poverty projects and West Northamptonshire Council.
A copy of the report can be accessed freely via this link.
The report was launched in an in-person event recorded and available to watch here (and on YouTube). It is sobering as it contains stories of lived experience which form the basis of the report.
