You are invited to a Virtual Event: Exploring the impact of Covid-19 on poverty and inequalities in Calderdale

Thursday 25th February 2021 2.00pm-4.30pm (Register no later than 12 February)

As you may recall our previous anti-poverty event – focusing on Health & Wellbeing – due to take place in March 2020 was cancelled because of the outbreak of COVID-19.

On behalf of the Anti-Poverty Partnership, I can now confirm that we are planning another partnership event for Thursday 25th February at 2.00-4.30pm. This virtual event using Zoom will concentrate on exploring the impact of Covid-19 on poverty and inequalities in Calderdale.

Debs Harkins, Director of Public Health at Calderdale Council, will be addressing all attendees to set the scene.

This engaging event will present different lived experiences of poverty during the pandemic and the latest key statistics.

Themed virtual break out groups will enable discussions to take place to explore and respond to the issues presented.

Group One:         Starting Well (Babies and young children 0-5 yrs)

Group Two:        Developing Well (Children starting school to young adults 5-25 yrs)

Group Three:     Living and working well (Adults living and/or working in Calderdale)*

Group Four:        Ageing well (Adults aged over 65 living in Calderdale)

*This group may be split into two groups.


Register now to secure your place

If you would like to register for this event, please reply to this email as soon as possible but no later than Friday 12th February, stating which discussion group you would like to attend. We will do our best to accommodate your first choice, but please indicate a second choice so we can balance the number in each group. Please also state which organisation you represent.

This event will feed into a number of Council and partnership plans including the Anti-Poverty Action Plan and all participants will receive a summary report following the event.
