    The changing nature of work and perspectives on in-work poverty


     ‘The changing nature of work and perspectives on in-work poverty’ was held in the Trades Hall in Glasgow on the 23rd September, 2014.  The seminar was organised collaboratively by the Glasgow City Community Planning Partnership and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health. 

    The aim of the event was to bring together a range of partner agencies across the public, voluntary and private sectors and individuals interested in responding to a range of labour market challenges. There were opportunities to hear about the latest research, take part in round table discussions and contribute to a panel debate.

    Professor Carol Tannahill, Director of the Glasgow Centre for Population Health and Chief Social Policy Advisor to the Scottish Government, opened and chaired the event, which included presentations from:
