Action on poverty

We continue to work with a range of strategic connections, alliances and networks to support actions on tackling poverty. Initial engagement in 2010 with the Healthier, Wealthier Children project, which is an NHS-led partnership approach to tackle child poverty, led to the subsequent production of GCPH learning outputs that continue to support the project’s development.

More recent alliances have involved supporting the ‘Cost of the School Day’ initiative that is hosted by Child Poverty Action Group in Scotland and works with schools to identify poverty-related barriers to learning and participation and to develop practical solutions.

The GCPH has also been working with the General Practitioners (GPs) at the Deep End project.  The focus of this work has been on the working-age adult population. It has involved exploring the role of GPs and primary care teams and how they could work with others to mitigate the effects of welfare reforms among the most disadvantaged people across Glasgow.
