Perpetuating Poverty: Deprivation Discourse in the North East- Research Poster

Researcher , University of York

Since 2015, I have been passionate about ending poverty in the UK. I began my journey as a campaigner against poverty in my local area with Poverty Ends Now, a young person lead group ran by Children North East. Since then, I have represented the UK in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and other positions of influence with poverty as my main focus point. My Laidlaw Scholarship research project is all about the relationship between language, meaning and poverty. By understanding and changing unhelpful public discourse about poverty, we can start to shift power.

Elif, this looks completely fascinating. As you may know, the Foundation sponsors the Laidlaw Schools Trust in the NE. I'd love to read your whole paper and see your toolkit. Could you please post them? Thanks, Susanna
